Talks on Tuesdays Webinar Series

 

October 2020 Talks on Tuesdays Webinar

Topic: Trauma and Early Childhood Development - Part I
Presenter: Andrea Muffly, MS OTR/L

Description: Join us to explore how trauma impacts early childhood development. We will learn about how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress change brain structure and impact global development. In Part I, participants will learn how chronic stress impacts brain development and creates pathways built for survival. We will discuss how these newly formed pathways affect children's ability to learn and regulate. In Part II, participants will learn functional strategies they can implement with the families they serve. Participants will learn how to address trauma within their roles as early interventionists as well as practical strategies to use with the families.

REGISTER TODAY

NOTE: You will automatically be registered for PART II - Trauma and Early Childhood Development - on November 10, 2020 (Please note the date change. This is not the typical first Tuesday of the month) when registering for October.
