About the Event
The Hidden Trauma in School Struggles: providing psycho-education and support for parents and teachers of students
Many parents and educators struggle to understand trauma and its impact on social, emotional, and academic functioning of their children/students. Traumatized children are often able to mask their symptoms and present themselves as if they’re doing fine. This will unfortunately lead to children slipping through the cracks.
Having a solid foundation of trauma-based behaviors and how it can present differently in each child will allow parents and educators to accurately identify and provide support for their children/students.
This workshop will provide a solid foundation of trauma, different presentations, as well as identifying maladaptive ways that school age children attempt to cope with it. This ultimately will increase your awareness of trauma-based behaviors in school settings and provide practical solutions you can utilize to support your child/student.
