Applying a Developmental-Relational Framework to Building Children’s Early Emotional Health

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT

How do children cope with traumatic experiences? A traumatic response might appear in the way children behave with their peers or as they transition from one activity to another. Professionals who work with children can learn to recognize and be sensitive to the various ways that children respond to trauma. These might include behavioral challenges, or sadness and withdrawal. In this workshop, you will learn how to partner with families and caregivers to support children’s healing and the building of resilience.

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn how children might process a traumatic experience through their behavior
  • Consider ways to support children’s optimal development through partnerships with their families and caregivers

This workshop is designed for professionals who work with families of young children interested in supporting children and families who have experienced trauma. Professionals may include early care educators, family child care providers, mental health consultants, home visitors, pediatricians, early interventionists, and more.

This series benefits family-facing providers who are new to the Touchpoints Approach as well as those who have been trained in Touchpoints. The series also benefits providers who have varying familiarity with trauma-informed care.

This workshop is the second of three workshops in the series, Beyond Trauma-Informed Care: A Developmental-Relational Framework for Engaging Adults and Children in Healing and Resilience, which explores strengths-based foundational concepts and actionable strategies related to trauma, adaptation, healing, and resilience. Family- and child-facing providers learn about a developmental-relational framework that will deepen their understanding of the individual and systemic impact of trauma and support their work with children and families. We explore identification and intervention strategies that can enhance relationship-based, developmentally informed practices to support healthy development and promote healing and resilience for both children and their adult caregivers. Participants learn to better understand and respond with empathy to behavior displayed by children and adults who have experienced trauma, while also supporting their development of a greater sense of trust and safety. Key concepts and strategies from the Touchpoints Developmental and Relational Frameworks are woven throughout the series.

You can register for each webinar individually or save $10 by signing up for the whole series.
