In this hour-long webinar, Geraldine will provide an overview of the relationship between trauma and its impact on behaviour, personality, and academics as it relates to developmental stages. Participants will learn when trauma should be the leading lens in assessment and treatment, how to triage competing treatment issues and what the critical elements are when working with traumatized children and youth. There will be an opportunity for participants to consider the needs of clients within the parameters of program limitations.

We will look forward to hearing back from participants to tailor future trauma trainings to suit current needs.
