Recognizing and Building Resilience in Children and Youth Exposed to Trauma
In this highly interactive training aimed at professional learning groups who work with high need children and youth, the presenter will engage participants in a variety of activities to address the types of trauma they have encountered in their professional and community settings, and how children and youth may manifest the effects along a spectrum of behavior. Participants will explore the positive correlation between the number of adverse childhood experiences and the likelihood of one engaging in risky behavior, leading to negative health outcomes. The presenter will offer opportunities to discuss the role resilience can play in reversing the path of a child exposed to violence, as well as useful strategies to bolster protective factors. Finally, participants will explore resources and tools for cultivating a trauma-informed professional environment to mitigate the effects of vicarious trauma, so practitioners can “walk the talk” as they continue to meet the emotional needs of the communities they serve.
