Understanding the Impact of Trauma on Behavior, by Barbara Kaiser
Mar 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Trauma in young children is much more pervasive—and much more destructive—than we ever thought. The research on trauma has made it clear that children’s challenging behavior is not intentional, but is instead driven by fear and a protective strategy for coping with their experience. Working with children with challenging behavior and especially those who’ve experienced trauma is probably the most stressful aspect of the teaching profession which can result in secondary traumatic stress (STS), the symptoms of which can mimic those of post-traumatic stress disorder.

In this session you will:

Develop an understanding of trauma and how it affects behavior

Learn ways to support children who have been traumatized

Develop strategies to promote your own resilience
