Oliver’s Story

August 10, 2022

Oliver was admitted to Windwood due to domestic violence between his parents. Even though Oliver was not the one being physically abused, witnessing domestic violence causes severe trauma to a child. Oliver would imitate his father’s behaviors by causing physical harm to other children. While at Windwood, Oliver learned how to cope with his emotions through skateboarding and taking walks with his therapist. While Oliver was at Windwood, his mother also sought treatment so that she was able to regain custody of him.

Because of Windwood, Oliver and his mother are hopeful for a better future.
