The Need for Trauma - Informed Care

The teen years are challenging, especially when deep hurts are involved. Did you know that 2/3 of all kids in the United States will face challenging and traumatic events by age 16? As compassionate adults, we need to be on a mission to bring hope and healing to the youth in our lives as they develop their own identity and move towards independence.

This 90-minute course will help parents, volunteers and providers decode trauma behavior while providing tools to build bridges of trust that lead to transformation. The ability to recognize typical responses to trauma and respond with empathy helps teenagers feel safe and succeed.

It's time to be the change-makers, the healers, and the champions these teens need. Join us on a journey that will empower you to build trust, foster connection, and open doors for the resilient youth who've faced adversity. Together, we can turn trauma into triumph!
