Shifting Your Lens: Intro to Trauma Informed Practices...

Category: Early Childhood Education (Regional and On-site)
Posted on 10/28/2020
Early childhood trauma and toxic stress affects an overwhelming number of the children in San Bernardino County. Many people assume that young children are protected from the impact of traumatic and stressful experiences. The reality is that they are significantly affected by these events, even if they may not understand what happened. While this is sobering, the research on resilience in children demonstrates that we can provide a reliable presence and help shield them from adverse experiences. Participants will develop an understanding of how toxic stress effects the developing brain, learn the importance of trauma-informed practices, and become familiar with The 5 Protective Factors.

Intended Audience

Early childhood special education teachers, early childhood general education teachers, early childhood paraprofessionals, and other service providers.
