Trauma-Informed Caregiving

The impact of trauma is experienced by children, families, caregivers and the child care providers who serve them. The principles of a trauma-informed approach and trauma-specific interventions are designed to address the consequences of trauma in the child, learn how to develop caring relationships with young children with histories of trauma and facilitate healing and resiliency.  The YMCA CRS Foster Child Care Bridge Program is offering training opportunities to assist providers in fostering a greater understanding of trauma-informed care and child traumatic stress.  Session 1: Understanding Trauma Learn to understand different types of trauma, recognize signs of trauma, and how you can begin to support the children in your care who have experienced these types of intense life experiences.  Session 2: Impact and Responses to Trauma Learn how to develop responses that build connection, healing and support a child’s healthy emotional development.  Session 3: Responsive Relationships from a Trauma-Informed Approach Learn several trauma-informed strategies and practices that nurture children’s healing and resiliency. This training supports the practical application of tools and resources supporting the child’s and the caregivers well-being.
