CONCERN Trauma-Informed Strategies Educational Series
Looking Back, Moving Forward: Trauma-Informed Strategies to Support Youth and Families Navigating a “New Normal”.
How did children who experienced trauma due to child abuse, neglect, and violence in the home, school and community fare during the pandemic? What should we expect as we emerge from the pandemic and how should we respond? How did the pandemic influence their development and mental health?
This session explores these questions by focusing on the short- and long-term impact of traumatic stress reaction on youth learning, behavior, relationships, and increased risk for mental health concerns. An array of trauma-informed practices to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on youth and families and build resilience will be provided.
There is a registration fee of $35 (includes lunch). Continuing education credits are available. CONCERN, through Alvernia University, will be providing 5.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for licensed social workers attending this training.
