Trauma and Behavior 1.5 hours
This training explores the impact of childhood trauma and adversity on the cognitive, emotional and social development of individuals throughout the lifespan. Special attention will be paid to the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, the effect that trauma has on behavior and health.
Child Sexual Abuse 1.5 hours
Our expert trainers will teach you how to identify, prevent and appropriately respond to sexual abuse at home and in the community. We will discuss warning signs of children who may have been harmed, and adults who may want to harm children. Participants will learn ways that families, groups and organizations can create safer environments in which children can learn, play and grow.
Overview of Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting for Advanced Professionals:
(This is NOT the NYS mandated reporting course)
This course is designed for professionals who have already taken the mandated child abuse reporting course and have been working in the field for a number of years. We will explore the warning signs of child abuse and neglect, the newest laws and procedures related to reporting, how to best work with child protective services and foster care, and answer any questions related to how to best work with maltreated children.
What We’re Missing
Can we identify bullies before they start acting out? Could ADHD really be misdiagnosed trauma? Where does conduct disorder come from? this training will help you better understand children’s difficult behaviors and what your team can do about them.
