Child Trauma & Recovery Issues (EDUC-595)
Each year, tens of thousands of American children will have a potentially traumatizing experience, such as the death of a parent or other close relative, physical or sexual abuse, neglect, domestic violence, violent crime, serious accident and natural disaster. The effects of trauma can profoundly impact a child's development and ability to learn and to function effectively. This course will provide educators and counselors with: 1) an understanding of how trauma can affect a child's brain, behavior, and learning; and 2) suggestions for helping children cope with trauma and for minimizing the negative effects of trauma on a child's learning experience.
