Workshop Description

This workshop will explore the neural underpinnings of stress, trauma, and emotional dysfunction in children and its relative impact upon learning.   Environmental deprivation, poverty, childhood abuse, witnessing violence, and parental neglect can impact both cognitive and social-emotional development in children. There will be a discussion on five steps that schools can take to become “trauma-informed”, in order to better meet the diverse needs of all learners. Schools can enhance emotional wellness through early prevention efforts, appropriate assessment and screening techniques, and an improved school climate to foster emotional growth for all children. Targeted assessment strategies, specific classroom accommodations, and key coping strategies will be presented for at-risk students.

NHASP is excited to partner with the School Neuropsychology Institute for this webinar. This webinar is available to anyone with an interest. Thank you for your interest and visiting our site!
