We can often have unrealistic expectations and make wrong assumption when working with kids with challenging behaviors. Often a child who has been a victim of trauma exhibits behavior we find troubling or difficult to understand, especially if we do not know the reason behind it. However, if a trauma-informed lens and approach are used to learn what happened to the child rather than just trying to deal with “what is wrong” with them, we can better help them deal with the pain and have a more resilient response to the trauma that caused it. Our four lectures are from experts in fields of behavior and child psychology.

This series’ topics include:

  • Trauma-Informed Approach: Creating Organizations that Empower Children to Thrive (Oct. 9, 2018)

  • “Bad” Behavior: Facilitating Healthier Choices through a Trauma-Informed Lens (Nov. 8, 2018)

  • A Roadmap to Healing: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Depression and Anxiety (Feb. 5, 2019)

  • What Has Happened to You, and How Can I Help?: Insights on Grief and Loss from a Trauma-Informed Approach (Mar. 6, 2019)
