Understanding Childhood Trauma and Its Negative Impact on Students in the Educational Environment
The goal of this online course is to impact student learning by expanding their knowledge about and perspectives on children who are impacted by developmental trauma, such as neglect; divorce; physical, emotional and sexual abuse; significant familial mental health and substance abuse; witnessing domestic violence; displacement and homelessness.
Further, participants who take this course should be expected to see changes in student learning by being able to identify what the behaviors of a child who has experienced developmental trauma look like in the classroom setting, and being able to respond to those students’ unique needs by having learned strategies to utilize within the classroom setting in order to mitigate significant behavioral and emotional manifestations that negatively impact educational performance and progress.
