Child Welfare Webinar: Big Behavior & Trauma: Similarities, Differences, and Strategies for Working with Traumatized Youth (June 2019)


Complexly traumatized children often behave in ways that seem random, unpredictable, withdrawn and extreme, struggling with impulse control and being able to think through consequences (NCTSN, 2017). Research and practice are now opening our eyes to the significant relationship between behavior and trauma exposure. In this webinar, you will learn about common similarities and differences between typical developmental behaviors and trauma behavior as well as the interrelatedness of each. You will receive strategies for working with youth who are exhibiting big behavior due to trauma exposure. In addition, you will receive tips and resources for further education and tools available to families. This webinar will utilize visual displays, incorporate participant feedback, and allow time for questions and answers.
