Join the Safe Foundations, Healthy Futures (SFHF) Campaign for a two-part webinar training. The training is designed to help staff understand the impact of trauma on children's behavior, their social and emotional well-being, and the health and wellness of adults in the child's life. Trainers will define trauma, describe its signs and symptoms in young children, and identify strategies to promote resilience in children and the adults who care for them. Teachers and families will discover tools to manage how they react to children whose behavior they find difficult. Program leaders will learn approaches for building organizational capacity to serve children and families impacted by traumatic events. A certificate will be provided to those who attend both days of the training.

To prepare for the webinars:

Reflect on what you know about trauma and resilience
Bring your questions about meeting the needs of children and families who have experienced trauma
