Creating Trauma-Transformed Early Childhood Settings: Integration and Application January 15, 2020
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.
Breakfast and lunch included.
