Part 4: Providing Services to Students with Clinically Significant Difficulties Following Trauma Exposure
When: Thursday, March 8 - 12:00 PM
Duration: 1 hours
A trauma-informed school system has the capacity to help meet the mental healthcare needs of children experiencing clinically significant difficulties resulting from trauma exposure. Problems can manifest as disruptive behavior disorders, PTSD and related symptoms, or other problems related to mood and self-regulation. A trauma-informed approach means being aware of and using the interventions that match the needs of the child based on their presenting problems. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the typical clinical presentations of youth exposed to traumatic events and highlight the best evidence-based practices to address their emotional and behavioral needs. These strategies can be implemented by trained mental health professionals in schools or by partnerships with community-based mental health providers.
