Workshop Description

We can't always know what adversity children and families have faced in the past or currently face in their daily lives. Ana will share information on:

  • Stress, adversity and trauma
  • Trauma-informed care approaches

In this presentation, Ana shares experiences as an educator and a parent of little ones to bridge how we as caregivers can best support various children and families.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the same workshop that was presented at the Early Years Thriving Online Summit June 2022. If you registered and completed the Summit in June 2022, you already took this professional development. 

This workshop includes personal stories which is why special permission is needed to access this recording. Thank you for understanding.
