Trauma Informed Caregiving

Supporting Children Who Have Experienced Trauma

This is an eight-session series
When: Tuesday, June 11-July 30, 2024
Time: 9 a.m.-11 a.m.
Where: Online Virtual Class via Zoom

A workshop for birth, foster & adoptive parents, grandparents, relative caregivers, child-serving professionals and community members to share information about trauma and the effects on children to strengthen positive relationships between children and adults.

Child trauma can be hard to identify and understand. The symptoms can look like so many other physical and mental health issues. A child who has experienced trauma may develop behaviors making it hard to form positive relationships with others. He or she may also continue the cycle of violence and abuse. When the “root cause” of the issue is not recognized and treated, families and workers can feel worn out.

Fortunately, trauma-informed caregiving and treatment can help children recover from their difficult childhood experiences. It helps them learn new ways of thinking about themselves and the world around them.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn information about trauma and its effect on children
  • Learn how to recognize and understand trauma reminders
  • Identify emotional “hot spots” and learn strategies to help manage behaviors
  • Gain knowledge and skills to become a trauma-informed advocate
