TraumaTALK: Trauma in the Classroom

Join us for a live presentation of TraumaTALK: Trauma in the Classroom at the Children’s Assessment Center.  This training is available on Friday, March 25th and Saturday, April 2nd and includes a Q&A opportunity with experts in children’s mental health.  Space is limited so please register below.

This three-hour evidence-based presentation and Q&A provides an effective trauma-informed training and professional development resource for educators K-12, school administrators, mental health professionals, foster parents, caregivers, and staff with child-oriented agencies.  Educators and other professionals working with children are often on the frontlines of child trauma, which manifests itself in many ways in the classroom.  The COVID-19 pandemic and long periods of social isolation may have had traumatic effects on many children, which could present challenges during the school year.  This engaging presentation will help educators and other professionals recognize the unique opportunity to identify trauma’s effects in the classroom and help children on a path to healing.  Using real-life examples of how teachers can help and small group interactions to facilitate learning, participants will be able to:
1) Identify three ways traumatic stress shows up in children’s behavior
2) Name three avenues for recovery for trauma survivors
3) Identify three strategies to help children promote an inner sense of safety in a classroom setting

This Professional Development Activity is approved by Texas Psychological Association (TPA): Three hours of Professional Development credits for psychologists, licensed specialists in school psychology, licensed psychology associates, social workers, and counselors.
