Trauma-Informed and Sensitive Practices

Children who have experienced trauma in their young lives have a variety of reactions, which can impact social, emotional, physical, or language development. This training examines trauma induced reactions and behavior in the classroom. The training offers strategies for early childhood educators to support trauma survivors at risk of being overwhelmed by feelings of distress and unable to regulate their internal emotional and physical states. This training also reminds ECE providers of the importance of self-care and creating a safe place in which to ground themselves as they support children in their classroom.
