Welcoming Environments for Children Who Experienced Trauma

Saturday February 4, 2017     

Time: 10:00 am – 3:30 pm          5 hours training                

 Fee: $85.00     FCC Fee: $70.00 (Promo Code)                                         *Materials fee included.

Many children experience trauma in their lives. How we support them has a profound effect on their potential for optimal development. In this workshop, we will explore common triggers, discuss how to create a culture of welcome and identify ways to implement the creative process effectively. We will discuss early brain development and how trauma impacts the brain, and explore case studies with discussion in small groups.

  • To be able to identify some common trauma triggers.
  • To know some creative process strategies to respond to children presenting trauma.
  • To understand more about early brain development and how it impacts the ability to process trauma effectively.

Suitable for ECE students, parents, instructors and administrators; and all early learning child care professionals working with children of any age including children with extra support needs.

Presenter: Orah Chaye. An Educator and Artist for over 25 years, Orah has instructed ECE, implemented appreciative inquiry curriculum in numerous settings, and worked extensively in Aboriginal, Refugee and Immigrant Populations. She has a particular interest in early human brain development and its correlation to early attachment. She is well known for her unique and creative programming with young children.
