Resiliency in the Face of the Childhood Trauma Crisis: Overcoming Adversity Through Attachment Relationships

Resiliency in the Face of the Childhood Trauma Crisis: Overcoming Adversity Through Attachment Relationships

Schools nationwide are struggling to effectively support children with emotional and social trauma. When undiagnosed and untreated, trauma can negatively impact a child’s ability to function and learn in the classroom, connect with their classmates, and build trusting relationships with teachers.

The symposium will highlight the challenges that many teachers are facing and offer promising intervention practices for schools and providers.


Who Should Attend?

School system administrators, teachers and providers who care for children 3-12 years of age and their families.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explore the emergence of technology in early childhood mental health.
  2. Learn about the impact of trauma on health outcomes.
  3. Explore intervention and best practice service delivery models.
  4. Review the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) model, including the study demographics and major findings.
  5. Learn about the Circle of Security’s classroom model of care and discuss the Lourie Center’s results from the model.

Continuing Education Units

The event is pending approval for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for social workers and psychologists. Please check the registration website in the upcoming weeks for approved CEU hours.
