Early experiences, both positive and negative, impact brain development, shape behavior and influence our ability to navigate life. This training discusses neurological and environmental factors driving the behaviors of children who have experienced traumatic events. Participants will take a closer look at how to respond with connection and compassion to their own lived experiences and be further empowered to provide coregulation and healing to the children in their personal or professional lives. Strategies for responding in a trauma-responsive manner will be provided. This training is an introduction to approaching our world through a trauma-focused lens and is appropriate for anyone who interacts with children.
This training is approved by KDHE for 1 child care licensing hour.
