Kinship Live Virtual Webinar Training – Trauma Series Part I: Understanding The Trauma Connection

October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Trauma series part one

In part I of our Trauma Series, we will be taking a look at trauma from your child’s point of view, including understanding the feelings they have after witnessing negative circumstances and being removed from their parents, to connecting the trauma to the behaviors they have at home and at school. We’ll also learn how to recognize behaviors that are a result of the trauma they have experienced versus behaviors that are not.
