Being Trauma Aware: Identifying and responding to the specific needs of children in the context of child care settings
This is a two part, 3 hour workshop run over two nights. You must attend both 1.5 hour sessions to receive a certificate of attendance. Children and young people tend to express their experiences through big behaviours and big feelings. These behaviours often present as incredibly difficult or concerning especially in the classroom/child care environment. When children and young people experience developmental trauma (abuse, neglect or violence, significant attachment disruptions), it impacts on their physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development. This workshop will provide introductory knowledge on the neurobiology of trauma, what trauma based behaviours may look in the child care setting. The aim will be to increase participants skills in how to identify and respond to children’s underlying trauma based needs in a way that promotes safety and opens space for learning. This introductory based workshop will promote workers’ to start to become trauma aware and develop skills for becoming trauma responsive in their work.
- Gain knowledge of the impacts of trauma on young children from a neuroscience & attachment based perspective.
- Learn how to identify emotional and behavioural presentations of trauma for children.
- Develop skills in how to respond to the trauma specific needs of children within the educational/child care setting.
