Event description

Description

Join Formed Families Forward for our annual professional workshop, designed for education, social service, clinical and other professionals who work with children, youth and families.

The workshop will build upon participants' understanding of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress on early brain development and implications for learning. The principles of trauma-responsive care and student social and emotional health will be addressed - providing participants with the tools to create systemic changes promoting environments conducive to the learning needs of all students. In addition, we know that "stressed brains can't learn" and this session will focus on strategies to suport the individual student who may be struggling socially, emotionally and/or academically due to the effects of trauma. Drawing upon the most recent work on attachment, regulation and skill development, participants will be given the opportunity to apply their understanding to current challenges faced in the classroom.
