The child with trauma is forever altered. Trauma has far reaching impacts that need to be understood if we are to help the child with trauma begin to heal and learn. Building classroom teacher knowledge and understanding to help meet the complex needs of the traumatised child and exploring ways to think about trauma and associated challenging behaviours are the goals of the workshop. By taking responsibility to know as much as we can to be the most effective in doing what works in classrooms and schools, is a keystone step in making a difference.
