Preview: When Bad Things Happen Jennifer Baggerly, PhD, LPC-S, RPT-S
The purpose of this presentation is to help attendees in guiding children through bullying, death, depression, or abuse. This course will increase the attendees understanding of the impact of traumatic events on children and learn practical skills to help their child become resilient. We will cover how traumatic events impact children’s neurophysiology and development, and how to provide comforting responses immediately after the event and in the weeks to come. We will instruct on how to foster positive coping skills and make sense of the traumatic event.
