Engaging Youth In Group Care — Foundational Module 1: ​ Understanding the Impact of Trauma

The “Engaging Youth In Group Care” series is composed of seven modules for those working with youth in a group care setting who have moderate to severe emotional and behavioral challenges.

Foundational Module 1 helps you develop an understanding of the underlying causes of a youth’s behavior, which is one of the first steps in supporting their well-being.

Foundational Modules 1 and 2 must be taken in order.  After you have completed these two modules, you can take the remaining 5 modules in any order.

This multimedia-driven course will expose you to a variety of composites of youths facing trauma and you will learn how events can affect long-term behaviors. A large portion of this training involves lessons about brain function and how trauma or disruptions manifest. Key learnings will include how to transition this information into real-life caregiving situations, including how to get to a place where you can understand the “why” behind the behavior.

At the close of the course you will be able to define trauma and recognize how traumatic stress and adversity impact a youth’s development. You also will understand the importance of responding to the underlying cause of a youth’s behaviors. You will leave with handouts and other resources to support your learning going forward.
