Plan to join us for this 3-day session. The purpose of this training and coaching process is to not only inform educators about the impact of adverse and traumatic events on children’s behaviors and ability to learn but through use of coaching and consultation, help educators become trauma responsive. It is not enough to know how trauma and adverse events impact children, only when we behave differently as a result of this info do we become agents of healing.
