Event description

Description

Component 1: An Introduction to Early Childhood Trauma

Brief Description: This presentation will offer participants an introduction to the concept of early childhood trauma, including its definition, prevalence, types, and impact on young children, families, and early childhood service providers and systems. It will highlight approaches to helping young children who are exposed to trauma heal and, ultimately, to thrive. In addition, participants will learn about the importance of supporting caregivers’ well-being and addressing secondary traumatic stress when working with young children who have experienced trauma.

Presenter: Jessica Dym Bartlett, MSW, PhD, Senior Research Scientist in Early Childhood Development and Child Welfare at Child Trends

Component 2: “They’re Only Babies”: Supporting Infants and Toddlers in Early Childhood Settings who have Experienced Trauma

Brief Description: This session will provide those involved, directly or indirectly, in working with infants and toddlers in early care and education settings guidance in supporting babies who have experienced trauma. Participants will understand the impact of trauma on very young children, learn to make meaning of behaviors and provide reflective, responsive caregiving; strengthen relationships with parents and family members; and consider their own needs for self-care.

Presenter: Kathleen Mulrooney, MA, LPC, IMH-E® (IV), Content Director/ Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health for Professional Development at ZERO TO THREE

Component 3: Toxic Stress and Its Impact on Preschool-aged Children

Brief Description: Stress is something that affects all of us from the youngest to the oldest. While some stress is necessary and positive; too much stress can be toxic. This session will focus on our biological need for relationships and how positive social experiences can buffer the negative effects of stress. We’ll look at the long-term effects of Toxic Stress and investigate practices teachers can use in early childhood classrooms for mitigating those effects and promoting resilience in young children.

Presenter: Pam Sigmon, BS, B-K Early Childhood Edducation/Non Licensure, Behavior Specialist with the NC Healthy Social Behaviors Initiative
