Trauma Informed Practice for Professionals Working with Young Children in Group


Event Description

Young children are too often witnesses to violence, whether it is at home, in their neighborhoods and/or through media. Early childhood professionals can best meet the needs of children exposed to violence when they understand the prevalence of exposure; the developmental impact; and, strategies for supporting children in a group setting. This session will examine the effects of violence on young children and the important role early childhood professionals can play in promoting resiliency in children who have been traumatized by violence in their lives. Early care providers will gain a better understanding of the impact of trauma on the developing child and how they can structure the child’s group experiences to maximize the healing process. The session will cover the developmental impact, the group situation, communicating with parents, and cultural factors. Meeting the needs of traumatized children and families can take a toll on caring professionals; therefore, the session will also focus in on the needs of caregivers by examining vicarious trauma and how to counteract it.
