Youth that have experienced some sort of trauma in their background present with a unique range of challenges that often manifest in unwanted behaviors and a lack of affect regulation skills. This training will address the many complex issues that accompany working with youth that have trauma backgrounds and how to effectively respond and intervene. By attending this training you will build skills that will help youth to develop feelings of safety. Additionally you will learn what it means to be trauma informed and how to begin implementing trauma informed practices in your community.
