The Need for Trauma-Informed Care


According to a study by the National Survey of Children’s Health, nearly half of all kids in the United States have experienced one or more traumatic events. As a result, parents and caregivers alike need to utilize new strategies to provide comprehensive care in ways that build trust, facilitate connection, and allow children to thrive.


This 90-minute course is designed to equip parents, teachers, community members, and childcare providers to engage well and meet the needs of kids that have experienced trauma. The following videos and content cover basic physiologic and behavioral responses to trauma as well as simple but effective ways to help kids feel safe and succeed.
