Building a Trauma-Informed Approach to Working with Children

April 26th, 2018 
5:00 to 6:00pm 
Valley View Hospital 

School and non-profit staff will learn to incorporate a trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive approach into their work, including ways to recognize trauma in children, specific strategies to best respond to trauma victims, and the prevention of inadvertently re-traumatizing children. Often trauma victims are perceived to be defiant, oppositional, and uncooperative. A trauma-informed practice helps increase victims’ receptivity to and engagement in services, while supporting academic achievement and higher retention rates for children and staff. Given the high rates of children exposed to maltreatment and other traumas, this class will benefit all who work with children and families.
