Creating Trauma-Transformed Early Childhood Settings: Integration and Application Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Vermont Higher Education Collaborative
Instructor: Jennifer Auletta

Early childhood educators and professionals across Vermont are increasingly educating themselves on trauma informed practices. How do we take our study of neurobiology, attachment and trauma-informed practices from theories and models into daily practice in our childcare classrooms and educational settings? Bring yourself and your team to this WORKshop to do just that. Participants will: Review neurobiology of trauma, resilience and healing in relationships; Review how understanding of attachment theory and use of co-regulation practices can positively affect behavior; Explore how to best integrate understanding of early childhood trauma-informed practices with evidence-based models and theories, including: MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support); ARC (Attachment, Regulation and Competency); and SFPF (Strengthening Families Protective Factors); Practice thinking thematically, i.e. use of developmental theory/tasks combined with creative multi-modal interventions to address symptoms and behaviors. These will include body, movement, music and play-based practices for classroom and home-based settings; and Engage in small group work to include: case studies, reflective practice and time for application of ideas to start using on Monday with children and parents/caregivers.
