CoP Name

Raising Resilience: Trauma-Informed Care for Preschool Professionals

Course Description:

A Community of Practice (CoP) to engage childcare professionals in learning about developmentally appropriate practices that promote recovery from trauma experienced through adverse early childhood experiences.

Community of Practice Philosophy:

Through the perspective of trauma-informed care, CoP members will discover how to embed opportunities to help children heal from traumatic early experiences into the classroom. By focusing on promoting safety, emotional literacy, and self-regulation, childcare professionals will be better able to teach young children the social-emotional skills they need to engage in developmentally-appropriate relationships and reduce challenging behaviors.

Monthly Meetings:

Raising Resilience-Foundations

1st Saturday Mornings of the Month Starting in August

In this cohort we will be learning, reflecting and discussing introductory information around trauma responses and trauma sensitive care.

Raising Resilience-Advanced

 3rd Saturday Mornings of the Month Starting in August

In the advanced cohort we will take a more in depth and experiential approach to further understanding attachment, trauma triggers, responses, and strategies that support building resilience through relationships.

*Both Cohorts will begin meeting virtually until further notice due to COVID gathering protocols.
