Age Group:
Birth to 8 years

The Pyramid Model is a fundamental basis of how we approach children and address challenging behaviors. However, if those behaviors stem from a traumatic experience we may need to use other strategies in addition to our core Pyramid Model work. This session will focus on how we define trauma and how we best support children who have experienced trauma. Participants will also address how they can best support the development of resilience, again using Pyramid Model supports as well as other strategies. Through the use of interactive discussion, video analysis and vignettes participants will learn new strategies they can integrate into their ongoing work.
