Presented by Elizabeth Emen, LMHC, NCC, C.A.S.E. Adoption-Competent Therapist
Children and adolescents in foster and adoptive families with complex trauma histories often bring emotional, behavioral, social and learning challenges into the school setting. Traditional approaches to learning and classroom behavior management are not only ineffective in helping kids with their difficulties but can exacerbate them.
Ms. Emen will help parents and professionals gain a deeper understanding of what the children are experiencing at school and learn the trauma-informed approaches and strategies that provide the kind of school environment, support, and relationships that help these youth thrive in the school setting.
NOTE: This webinar addresses concerns in traditional classroom settings. It is not intended to address concerns specific to learning in the virtual environment.
