Don’t Be a Trigger: Trauma-Informed Care Approach to Working with Children

November 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

November 14th, 10AM-12PM

Our past experiences – personal, familial, societal – influence our brain development and shape how we interpret and respond to the world. Sometimes adults do not recognize how these experiences manifest as behaviors and they unintentionally harm children. This introductory session is designed to change your approach to the behaviors children exhibit to decrease the likelihood of triggering them.
