This training is for caregivers who work with children in school-age programs to learn skills on how to identify trauma-based behaviors and to recognize the importance of strong, attached relationships to build a trusting and safe environment. Additionally, knowledge will be gained through research-based data and resources to support children who are overcoming challenges that are not of their own doing or choice. Developing a trauma-informed lens of approach is a crucial component of this training.
