274 Networking Meeting

Complex Childhood Trauma and Its Impact on Learning

This training for educators focused on the neurological impact that complex trauma has on the developing brain and how it affects learning. Presentations described the causes, types and neurological symptoms of complex trauma. Participants discussed in small groups the impact of complex trauma on the school experience for students of different developmental ages and the role families play in supporting their children exposed to trauma. Practical strategies that educators can use every day in teaching students experiencing trauma were illustrated with real-life examples of challenges and successes.
