Child traumatic stress refers to the physical and emotional responses of a child to events that threaten the life of the child or of someone critically important to the child. Those who work with children, caregivers and/or students preparing to become social workers, teachers, counselors or who plan to work with children in other ways are invited to participate in this informative, interactive education program about trauma-informed care and what it means for the health and well-being of children. This educational program was developed and tested in collaboration with FIU College of Education and based on materials from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.

Objectives

  • Participants will understand the impact of trauma on the development and behavior of children and their adult caregivers.
  • Participants will articulate trauma-informed intervention strategies.
  • Participants will address the safety and well-being of the children they serve.

Space is limited, Eventbrite RSVP is required here.
