Come join Hively staff and our trainer Julie Kurtz, founder and Executive Director for Center of Optimal Brain Integration, for this training!
For children who experience trauma, play is a powerful tool that provides them with a context to transform the experiences that are overwhelming, frightening, and unimaginable into manageable and predictable events that they have control over. In this training, we go deeper in understanding the intersection of trauma and play and how to support children to have a voice and pathways to heal. Many children express their thoughts and feelings more fully and directly through play than they are able to do verbally because young children’s emotions are often inaccessible to them at a verbal level. Specifically for early childhood providers, this training will help them learn what to do when they observe trauma being expressed in a classroom through a child’s play.
