SEAHEC is presenting the following:
Helping Traumatized Children Learn and Succeed Through the Implementation of Trauma-Informed Care
FEBRUARY 23, 2018...
This program is designed to introduce the concepts and implementation of trauma-informed care as a method to improving school success among youth. Research and clinical evidence shows that trauma-informed approaches should include an understanding of trauma as well as an awareness of the impact and effects of trauma on learning and development. It involves thinking about trauma in different ways and altering approaches and strategies to provide opportunities for children to rebuild a sense of control, empowerment, and mastery in their environment to create successful learning.
The workshop is interactive and will incorporate participants’ experiences, questions, and concerns related to implementation of trauma informed approaches to care. Participants will leave the session with a deeper awareness of the prevalence and impact of trauma as well as practical strategies for how to continually move toward being more trauma-informed, including how to interact with students during a crisis.
