Raising Resilience: Trauma-Informed Care for Preschool Professionals

Course Description:

In Raising Resilience: Trauma-Informed Care for Preschool Professionals, a community of practice (CoP), Easterseals Blake Foundation will 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.
