Managing Trauma: A Basic Classroom Approach
Instructor: Pat Clark/
Description:

Trauma can affect many aspects of a child's life.  Oftentimes we fail to understand the effects of trauma, possibly not understanding a child's behavior as a result of the trauma.  It can be easy to see a child's behavior as defiant, or disruptive, when the behavior is really a result of the child's response to trauma.  This workshop, with curriculum from Akron's Children Hospital, can help educators, and others who deal with children, understand the impact trauma can have on a child's life.

  What you will learn:

  • The impact of trauma on a child's brain
  • How to manage trauma in the classroom
  • Strengthening resiliency through developmental assets
  • Recognizing & handling secondary traumatic stress

This is a Level 1 training for participants who have had little or no training on trauma.

If you are having trouble registering, please call Pat Clark at  513.695.2900 ext. 1653, or email at PatriciaClark@warrencountyesc.com
