The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) research highlights the powerful connection between the experience of early adversity and the subsequent short and long term effects on physical and psychological wellbeing. A growing number of students in our classrooms have been impacted by adversity: as a result of domestic violence, neglect or maltreatment, intergenerational trauma or race-based aggression, bullying, escaping war or economic instability.
Children and youth may exhibit problems with mental health, self-regulation and lagging skills. They often respond with adaptive coping mechanisms – sometimes characterized as challenging behaviours – which can be disruptive to the learning environment. This pain-based behaviour has meaning and serves to communicate needs. Once you understand the function of this behaviour, you can apply appropriate interventions to achieve positive outcomes.
This training will be of interest to those working in educational settings: teachers, EA’s, CYCP’s, social workers and anyone working with students with complex needs. Grounded in theories of trauma, attachment and neuroscience, this training will provide participants with a framework to respond effectively using relationship to promote resilience and recovery in youth.
