About This Event

Many young children experience trauma. Identifying trauma symptoms and appropriately responding is critical to ensuring a child’s wellbeing.

This three-hour virtual training will focus on early childhood mental health, the impact of trauma, and provide a better understanding of the referral process to trauma-informed treatment. Understanding the importance of screening for trauma and identifying red flags will help you support young children in your role.

Participants will receive resources, an agenda, and a certificate of attendance.

Who should attend? Anyone who works with or on behalf of young children.
