Seminar

How Parents and Teachers Can Help Children Build Strong Foundations Despite Adverse Childhood Experiences

About the Seminar

Parenting and educating children who have experienced trauma is a difficult task. It is important to understand the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences during the first years of life when the brain is growing quicker than at any other time. The impact of trauma on the growth of the brain can be seen not only on imaging of the brain but also in how children behave in multiple environments including home and school. Join us to learn how early onset trauma affects the brain as well as how this stress affects the whole body and the potential lifelong effects. We will also look at how attachment is not only affected by trauma but how powerful relationships can provide healing during unstable times. Further, participants will understand the role of parents and teachers in building strong foundations in children who have experienced trauma.
