Traumatized Child

Traumatized Child:
The Effects of Stress, Trauma & Violence on Student Learning

This course is designed to help classroom teachers, school counselors, and other educational personnel gain strategies to reach and teach students who have been affected by stress, trauma, and/or violence. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of stress and trauma and explore how stress, violence, and trauma affect a student's learning, cognitive brain development, and social-emotional development. The short- and long-term consequences of being exposed to stress, trauma, or violence, as well as the social and family causes, will be reviewed. The dynamics of domestic violence and community violence are also discussed, as is the educator's role in the intervention and prevention of violence.
This course was well presented and included a lot of very helpful material. I enjoyed it and have shared a lot of the information with my coworkers. I constantly catch myself saying, “in this course I am working on…” That is when I realize that the work I am doing on the course is very relevant to my work with kids. Thanks.
