In the community health setting you frequently work with parents who aren’t prepared to deal with the trauma responses of children and adolescents. And when they’re not, things can quickly go from bad to worse. In this session, you’ll learn to identify trauma reactions and get scripts you can use to make and maintain progress by teaching caregivers to respond to trauma driven behaviors.
