Current research has helped us understand the way children are impacted by childhood experiences.  Creating supportive environments with reliable, consistent adults who understand how to appropriately interact through a trauma informed framework can significantly decrease behavioral disruptions, encourage appropriate coping skills and foster healthy brain development.  In this webinar, we will discuss the goals and framework of trauma informed care in hopes of supporting you in applying it to routine discipline and guidance.
