Trauma and Children
Handle with Care Training

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) research demonstrates that trauma can undermine children’s ability to learn, form relationships and function appropriately. Trauma, like addiction affects entire families, school systems and communities. The resulting complex array of physical, social, emotional, and behavioral challenges can be difficult to understand and address especially in a classroom. This training will cover the developmental issues and symptomology of trauma, behavioral interventions, the nine elements of trauma informed care, the Handle with Care program and interventions anyone can use to help a child self-regulate.

This training is being offered at five different locations throughout the state. It is free and includes Continuing Education Credits for Counseling, Social Work, Nursing and Psychology. Anyone who interacts with children professionally is welcome to attend and will benefit from this training. Instruction time is from 8:00am until 3:30 pm. Onsite registration begins at 7:15.
