Trauma & Resiliency Training for Early Childhood Providers

Saturday, February 29th, 2020 
11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
 REGISTRATION REQUIRED 


Statistics show us that one in four children will experience trauma by the age of four. This trauma could be abuse, hunger, homelessness, witnessing violence, medical trauma, or grief.

We know that a child's greatest learning occurs during the early childhood years. These traumas cause behaviors that we see every day in the classroom. As early childhood providers, we need to recognize the signs of trauma, and teach children how to cope with the feelings they experience.

This training will discuss:

  1. Why trauma matters?
  2. How trauma affects the brain?
  3. How trauma affects behavior?
  4. Individual resilience
  5. Ways to help children cope

This training is free and open to early childhood providers, with priority given to those accepting state subsidy and serving the infant / toddler population. A two-hour training certificate will be given.

We must have at least 10 people registered or the class will be cancelled.
