Painful and stressful experiences early in life can have a lasting effect on children’s growth and development. This series provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of these experiences on young children and introduces effective strategies for working with these children in a child care setting. The sessions will highlight the importance of building trusting relationships and recognizing cues and triggers while supporting children with a history of trauma. This series is designed for educators who possess a solid understanding of the foundations of healthy social and emotional development for young children.
Participants who complete the series will:
- define and understand the impact of trauma and toxic stress on children’s health and development
- appreciate the role resiliency can play in helping children respond to trauma and toxic stress
- recognize triggers and behaviors associated with trauma and toxic stress
- identify and utilize strategies and resources to support children and families who have experienced trauma
Participants can earn up to 12 PD hours by attending the three face-to-face sessions and completing three online assignments.
