Trauma Informed Practices: Fostering Self-Regulation and Resilience in Children

How does trauma impact child development? What does it mean to be trauma informed? What can we do? This webinar will provide an overview of the impact of trauma on child development and explore what we as educators, parents and providers can do to foster resilience and self-regulation in children.

Learning objectives
  • Participants will understand the impact and prevalence of trauma in children's lives
  • Participants will re-frame challenging behaviors through a trauma informed lens
  • Participants will be able to articulate options for increasing children's regulation and resilience

Note: This was originally scheduled as a workshop at the WECA Conference in November. Because we had to cancel the session, this webinar is offered free to conference participants. You'll find registration details on the registration form.

Fee: $10.00

Topics: Health and Wellness, Inclusion and Diversity
