This training will explore trauma in the lives of young children, focusing on Birth- Age 5.  Trauma will be defined as it relates to young children and how it may affect typical child development.  Resiliency will be also defined, exploring different resiliency factors in young children and the role they play in children's responses to traumatic events.  This training will also provide social worker's with the tools to know when to make a referral for a child on their case load, and what type of referrals to make.  Social workers will also learn about the "red flags" to be aware of when working with traumatized children, and how to respond appropriately to them.  Social workers will be prepared to discuss the effects of trauma on young children with biological, foster and adoptive families, and provide them with some tips and strategies to support these children in their homes.  This training will also explore vicarious traumatization from the perspective of the social worker, and how to draw on their own resiliency factors when working with young children who have been traumatized.
