Online course on Trauma

The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children is offering a course titled: “Healing the Experience of Trauma”.  The learning objectives sound quite relevant to our work.  Take a look:

  • Understand the psychophysiology of trauma.
  • Name at least three ways stress and trauma influence changes in the central nervous system.
  • Identify the components of the core regulation network.
  • Describe ways to engage the vagus nerve according to the polyvagal theory.
  • Demonstrate activities you can use with youth to pendulate between trauma and resilience themes.

This course is open to the public and would be a great way to learn more about best practices when working with children and families impacted by traumatic events.  To learn more and view a video segment of the course, visit:
