Helping traumatized children learn
Awareness and understanding childhood trauma is essential for educators to facilitate the best outcomes for all children in the classroom. Research has demonstrated links between childhood trauma and mood, behaviour, memory, learning and relationships as well as a host of correlations with negative outcomes in education, health, income and life expectancy in adult life.
This 3 hour detailed video and audio course will change forever the way you relate to children, especially the ones that have had a difficult start to life.

Teaching students with complex trauma

This course covers understanding what trauma is, how it is different to adverse childhood experiences, and how prevalent trauma is.  It looks at how trauma changes the brain and how this affects the mind and body, mood and behaviour.  The course has dedicated lessons on understanding classroom behaviour and managing classroom behaviour.  It provides detail for a trauma sensitive classroom and some insights into the trauma sensitive school.

Educators are familiar with conditioning based disciplinary policies.  However, some children simply do not respond to this type of discipline.  Yes, they know the rules but they will not follow them, no matter what the consequences are and no matter how many times you have told them.  This course explains this type of behaviour together with many other confusing presentations that educators see in the classroom.
