Understanding and Responding to a Child with Trauma History

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many of the challenging behaviors we see in our classrooms are simply survival techniques for children who have experienced trauma. Drawing from real-life stories, the presenter will guide you in gaining an understanding of different types of trauma, how trauma affects a child’s brain and social emotional development, and several strategies you can implement that will help children who have experience trauma learn the skills they need to succeed in school and life.
