This interactive workshop will be helpful for those who work with children in many settings such as daycares, schools, and any agency that provides direct service to children. The first part of the training will focus on trauma and the brain, attachment, and trauma responses. In the second part of the training, the counselors will share techniques that have been helpful when working with clients! The workshop will provide a space where people can share ideas and connect.
