Traumatic Experiences

 
Presented by: Tara Wright, Sesame Workshop
Date: October 30, 2017, 5:30 PM Pacific time
Track: Community and Family Engagement
Price: FREE
 
Traumatic experiences change the way kids’ brains are wired. But adults hold the power to help lessen its effects. It helps when kids feel seen and heard by a caring adult and someone patiently teaches coping strategies and resilience-building techniques. Your friends at Sesame Street have created resources to help caring grown-ups like you mitigate the effects of traumatic experiences in the kids you care for. In this webinar, we'll walk through a selection of these resources to help you bring these protective factors to life.
