Event description

Description

This continuing education workshop will highlight the environmental factors that impact the development of young children, particularly for those born into families and communities that continue to experience marginalization due to racial, economic, and gender bias. Specific interventions will be presented that counter the effects of present day traumatic events as well as historical and intergenerational trauma for young children. Use of case examples will be employed to illuminate the issues as well as resolution of presenting problems for this client population and their family members.

This workshop is pending approval for 3 clinical hours for Social Workers by the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners and for 3 clinical hours for LPCs and PLPCs by the Louisiana Counseling Association.

In an effort to encourage the health and safety of our CEU presenters and attendees, this workshop will be held virtually. Call-in details for the virtual workshop will be posted closer to the date of the workshop.

By the end of the 3 hour training, participants will:

  • Enhance their self-awareness of personal biases about culturally and socially diverse client populations.
  • Increase their knowledge about intergenerational and historical trauma as they relate to young children's development.
  • Augment their knowledge of clinical interventions with young children to address issues of trauma and traumatic stress.

Registration fee includes the workshop, coffee, light refreshments, CEU certificate and handouts.
