The purpose of this project was to develop a graphic novel geared towards the adolescent population. The first part of this project includes a literature review that explores key concepts that include complex trauma and brain development and the negative impact complex trauma has on learning. In reviewing the quality of the project, two groups participated in the review process a group of educators and a group of adolescents. The first group was asked to review the project and provide feedback that would assist in strengthening the content. The second group participated in a discussion that revolved around complex trauma and the importance of addressing such a sensitive topic among adolescents. Topics addressed include addictions issues, verbal and sexual abuse, and complex trauma. The guiding ideology of the project is that adolescents will be equipped with the tools necessary to recognize complex trauma and what supports are available for survivors of complex trauma. --Leaf i.
