Friday, June 7, 2019, 9:00 AM

THIS TRAINING IS FUNDED THROUGH A GRANT AND IS FREE FOR CHILD WELFARE WORKERS.  If you are not a child welfare worker and are interested in attending, please contact the organizer for further details. Description: In the field of child welfare, trauma, neglect and loss are consistently present. Understanding how these experiences effect the children coming into care, and their families (past and present) is important as professionals work to achieve goals of permanency. This training is meant to help workers understand the developmental effects of trauma and neglect, how this impacts children and parents, as well as how being exposed to these memories and situations affect families and professionals. The training will include hands on activities and exercises that help the worker to understand the effects of trauma and loss, as well as develop self-care plans for themselves and the families who are impacted. A worker may encounter resistance from clients; however, there is still a strong need for partnership and engagement in order to meet common goals.  This training is meant to help workers identify barriers to progress, utilize engagement techniques in aiding clients forward movement, and focus on creating a strength based approach to developing a team plan. Objectives: 1. Define Trauma and its effects on child development 2. Understand trauma triggers and typical responses 3. Understand the effects of secondary trauma and how to develop a self-care plan
