Surviving & Thriving: Trauma and Resilience Training - Annandale

Statistics show us that one in four children will experience trauma by the age of four. This trauma could be abuse, hunger, homelessness, witnessing violence, medical, or grief. We know that a child’s greatest learning occurs during the early childhood years. These traumas cause behaviors that we see every day in the classroom. As early childhood providers, we need to recognize the signs of trauma, and teach children how to cope with the feelings they experience.

This training will discuss:

  1. Why trauma matters?
  2. How trauma affects the brain?
  3. How trauma affects behavior?
  4. Individual resilience
  5. Community resilience

This training is free and open to early childhood providers, with priority given to those accepting state subsidy and serving the infant / toddler population.

Please note: Space is limited. Once the class is full, we will create a waitlist.
