When We Heal An Abused Child, We Heal Our Community

For many children suffering from abuse, educators are often the first adults to recognize the warning signs and take action.

TraumaTRAINING for Educators: Shining a Light on The Invisible Wounds of Childhood Trauma

This three-hour workshop, facilitated by Shawn Alex Nemeth (a trauma survivor), provides educators with a personal and professional perspective of childhood trauma with small-group interactions and practical problem-solving activities. Through this workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Recognize the types of trauma and the impact on brain development
  • Understand the effects of trauma exposure and its long-term consequences
  • Access tools to promote a sense of safety and help children in the classroom

Participants also receive a professionally-created quick reference guide to help them work with traumatized children more effectively in the classroom.

Contact shawn@chesterstreetfoundation.org for details to bring this effective trauma-training program to your school district, or any faith-based/community/civic organization working with children.

In addition to our TraumaTRAININGS program, TraumaTALKS are also offered to educators in public and private settings.
