New Directions for Children, Youth, Adults and Families is pleased to provide Making Sense of Trauma: Practical Tools for Responding to Children and Youth Webinar

The Webinar is based on the Making Sense of Trauma: Practical Tools for Responding to Children and Youth workshop that has been delivered 45 times to over 1,900 people working with children and youth. It was out of a desire to make the information even more accessible that the Webinar was created.

Just like workshop, this Webinar provides an understanding of how and why children respond to trauma the way that they do and why we often see particular patterns of behaviour. In the Webinar you will learn how to use a trauma-informed perspective to better understand the relational, neurobiological and developmental impact of trauma on children, youth and their caregivers.

The Webinar is structured into 12 Lessons with quiz questions after every slide that once completed enable you to print a certificate of completion.

There is also a written Guide to the Webinar which you can download that includes the script for the Webinar and additional information.

The Webinar provides tools and ideas of ways to intervene to help anyone working with children and youth.  This includes written resources which can be printed, saved or distributed.

There is no cost to the webinar.  Please pass on this email or the link to anyone you think might be interested.

This guide advises parents of their rights and lists some of the services and supports available in the community. Because services sometimes change, it is advisable to call and verify the hours, fees, services and accessibility of listed resources.
