Sat, April 8, 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
We interact and care for children who have experienced psychological and emotional trauma on a daily basis. These traumatic experiences can have a poor effect on their behavioral, social, academic, cognitive, and psychological functioning. Caregivers of children who've experienced trauma often have questions on how to best support the children in their care. This workshop will educate caregivers on the various type of trauma, its effects of child and adolescent development, and how to support the child who has experienced trauma.
After you attend this workshop you will be able to:
Describe the impact that traumatic experiences has on child and adolescent development
Describe children's responses to trauma
Identify supportive trauma-informed strategies used to parent children who've experience trauma
Identify methods to reduce caregiver distress associated with the aftermath of the traumatic event
