Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma Part 2: Trauma 101
Part 2 of the “Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma” series will introduce you to what trauma is and how a child’s behaviors may be evidence of a response to a traumatic experience, looking at physical, mental, emotional and developmental impacts. While focused on trauma, this training also spends time discussing resilience. You will look at real-life scenarios that illustrate how to see positive signs in challenging behaviors, and how to foster the growth of these bright spots. At the close of the class you will understand child trauma and the response to traumatic events, as well as what resilience is and how you as a resource parent can help promote it.
