Help, Hope and Healing: How to Help Young Children Heal from Traumatic Events
This free workshop is part of the Playing to Learn program and is also available for child care providers.
One in four children in the United States will experience an event that may cause physical, emotional or psychological distress and may threaten their safety, health and happiness in big and lasting ways. But with the latest research, the power of healing relationships (and a little help from Big Bird), these experiences do not have to define a child’s life. This session will provide parents and day care providers an overview about trauma and how it impacts the developing young child. We will explore how the Sesame Street in Communities resources can help adults navigate this difficult period in a child’s life and promote hope and healing.
Presenter: Ann Thomas, President, CEO The Children’s Place
