How do adults cope with traumatic experiences? When someone experiences a traumatic event, it might influence them immediately, or the impacts of the event might appear later in life. Professionals who work with families who have experienced trauma sometimes experience stress or relive their own traumatic histories while doing this work. In this webinar, you will learn about the ways that adults cope with trauma – both as it happens, and later in life – and strategies you can use to support healing and resilience when working with adults and caregivers dealing with current trauma or traumatic histories.

This webinar is a part of Beyond Trauma-Informed Care: A Developmental-Relational Framework for Engaging Adults and Children in Healing and Resilience Series.

This three-part webinar series will explore strengths-based foundational concepts and actionable strategies related to trauma, adaptation, healing, and resilience. Family- and child-facing providers will 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 will 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 will 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 will be woven throughout the series.

You can register for each webinar individually or sign up for the whole series.
