This workshop will provide participants with a base knowledge for how stress and trauma impacts young children (ages 0-6 years). Special attention will be paid to the signs or symptoms young children display that may indicate they have been impacted by stressful events. Strategies for providing trauma-informed care to children in any setting will be introduced.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Participants will be able to define what is considered “trauma” in children under the age of 6 years
  • Participants will be able to identify several ways in which trauma symptoms present in children ages 0-6 years
  • Participants will be able to identify several skills to be used to provide trauma-informed care with children ages 0-6 years
