FREE How Trauma Affects Learning and Development

An increasing body of research links exposure to trauma with learning and development difficulties. Children experiencing early life adversity can develop challenges in adult and peer relationships, language development, communication, problem-solving, and emotional regulation and impulsivity. A child or an adult with unaddressed trauma can have trouble with learning and behavior.

At this training you will learn:

  • Brain basics-linking chronic stress to learning and development

  • The impact of trauma on brain development

  • How the impacts appear in children and adults

  • Beyond understanding the "what" of trauma-informed practice--digging into the "how"

  • What do we need to do to promote trauma competence

  • How our practice can incorporate "brain-based" trauma intervention

Who Should Attend

  • Providers of services to children 0-to-5

Includes

  • Light breakfast, lunch and snacks

This free training is open to Shasta County providers serving young children, ages 0-to-5, and their families. This training is brought to you by First 5 Institute, First 5 Shasta's education extension, whose mission is to provide the highest quality opportunities for young children, pregnant women and providers of services to children 0-to-5. Register early - only 30 spots available!

FREE Exclusive HHSA Showing of Resilience

  • Shasta County Board of Supervisors (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”

Hi HHSA staff, 

HHSA, Public Health is hosting several screenings of Resilience, The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope followed by a discussion to support awareness and understanding of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and what we as an agency can do to break the cycle.

The documentary Resilience reveals the science behind how abuse and neglect during childhood can cause toxic stress. Toxic stress negatively affects the brains and bodies of children, increasing their likelihood of chronic disease, cancer, mental health issues, drug addiction, homelessness, incarceration, decreased work productivity, and even early death.

However, there is hope. Resilience inspires those in pediatrics, education, and public service to join the movement towards healing and to promote the mindset that anyone and everyone can be a part of this generational change.

Join the movement! Help build resilience and promote hope in Shasta County.

Date: October 25th, 2018

Time: 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Location: Board of Supervisors | Court Street
