Strengthening Families: Building Positive Relationships with Children who have Experienced Trauma

Wednesday, June 9, 2021

Child trauma can be hard to identify and understand. The symptoms can look like so many other physical and mental health issues. A child who has experienced trauma may develop behaviors making it hard to form positive relationships with others. He or she may also continue the cycle of violence and abuse. When the "root cause" of the issue is not recognized and treated, families and workers can feel worn out. Fortunately, trauma-informed caregiving and treatment can help children recover from their difficult childhood experiences. It helps them learn new ways of thinking about themselves and the world around them. In this workshop, through activities and videos, information about trauma and its effects on the brains and bodies of children is shared with parents, caregivers, community members and child-serving professionals. This information helps adults build positive relationships with children.
