Develop new strategies to help children affected by trauma cope, build resilience and reach their full potential.
As a family support professional, you can have a profound impact on a child’s ability to cope, build resilience, and achieve optimal development. In this workshop you’ll gain a strong foundation of knowledge by learning more about early brain development and how trauma impacts the brain.
You’ll also gain hands-on knowledge and experience with interactive case studies and activities designed to help you learn how to:
- identify some common trauma triggers,
- create a culture of welcome for all children,
- identify ways to implement the creative process effectively,
- develop more creative strategies to respond to children presenting trauma, and
- understand more about early brain development and how it impacts the ability to process trauma effectively.
Coffee and snacks will be provided. Lunch is on your own, and there are restaurants near-by. Paid parking ($13) is available at the site. A certificate will be issued upon completion.
