Working with Traumatized Children

CWLA is pleased to announce a new three-part, virtual training series that features the publication Working with Traumatized Children – A Handbook for Healing. Now in its third edition, Working with Traumatized Children has been updated to include new strategies and approaches for caregivers and others responsible for meeting the needs of children who are vulnerable.

Participants will gain a strengthened capacity to:

  • Define what trauma is and differentiate it from stress
  • Provide examples of trauma symptoms in children and adults
  • Describe how trauma can impact children’s brains
  • Advocate for the provision of safe environments when working with children and adults who have been affected by trauma
  • Provide examples of how systems can be traumatizing or retraumatize people
  • Explain the importance of understanding the vagus nerve when working with families and children who have been affected by trauma
  • Express why self-reflective practices and supervision are important when working with this population
