Education Day: Helping Children Through Trauma

Monday, February 26th, 2018.
Daytime Sessions 9:00am – 4:00pm
Evening Sessions 6:00pm – 8:30pm

Workshops Will Highlight:
· How a traumatic event can involve a single experience, or enduring repeated events, that completely overwhelm the individual’s ability to cope or integrate the ideas and emotions involved in that experience.
· It is not the event that determines whether something is traumatic to someone, but the individual’s experience of the event and the meaning they make of it. Those who feel supported after the event (through family, friends, spiritual connections, etc.) and who had a chance to talk about and process the traumatic event are often able to integrate the experience into their lives, like any other experience.
