Event Description
Akron Children’s Hospital and Child Focus, Inc. are dedicated to helping schools better understand how students experience traumatic events and how to help them through this challenging time. We are offering a free comprehensive training to school districts and organizations that work with youth in Ohio. 1. An Introduction to Trauma. This component covers the basics of trauma, what types of trauma students may face, and how trauma can affect a student’s physical, emotional, and cognitive abilities. 2. Managing Trauma in the Classroom. This component covers techniques to prevent a trauma based reaction in the classroom and what to do if a child is acting out in your classroom. This workshop will focus on preschool-kindergarten age children. 3. Increasing Developmental Assets. This workshop is for any adult who wishes to focus on the positive characteristics of children and nurture a path to thriving for all. The workshop will define the 40 Developmental Assets developed by The Search Institute. The Developmental Assets have been proven to increase a child's cognitive, emotional, and physical well-being. Using the Assets as an "instruction book" can be the guide to fostering future success in children of all ages. Participants will leave this workshop with a new perspective of the strengths of children and will be provided tools to build resiliency in those they care about the most! 4. Recognizing Secondary Traumatic Stress. This component works with the educators to recognize their own compassion fatigue or burnout. It covers techniques for staff to use to relax, keep balance, and continue to help students in need.
