Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma Part 6: Connections and Healing
Part 6 of the “Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma” series focuses on the power of connections and how they play a vital role in helping children heal from trauma. During this course you will be introduced to a family story that illustrates the intergenerational nature of trauma and how different people react to the same events. You will engage in activities and discussions where you will consider how to respond to challenging scenarios. This training also focuses on how to give a child a safe space to talk about their trauma. While it may be tempting to think the best thing for the child is to forget about past events, there are many positive things that can come out of allowing the child to discuss their experiences. You will learn many tools that will help you show active, supportive listening and create an environment in which the child feels it’s safe to share.
This course is not eligible for Social Work CEUs at this time.
