Collaborating and Communicating with Schools to Build Resilience in Children Impacted by Trauma
September 30, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Children and youth exposed to trauma and traumatic stress are more likely to struggle with behavioral, academic and social success. Families can take steps to address the impact of trauma and help build resilience. These steps are much more effective when taken in collaboration with schools that facilitate open communication approaches. This session offers a brief overview of childhood trauma and suggests strategies for building relationships between families and schools to build skills. Join Kelly Henderson, Ph.D., Executive Director of Formed Families Forward, to learn more about strategies that schools and parents/caregivers can implement together to ensure children and youth impacted by trauma and toxic stress have the best outcome possible.
Light refreshments will be served. No Child Care is available for younger children.
