The Neurobiology of Trauma: Abuse, neglect or assault can affect a person physically, mentally and emotionally. This workshop explores the brain-body connection to trauma, and what people can do to heal.

Overview of Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting for Advanced Professionals:
(This is NOT the NYS mandated reporting course)
This course is designed for professionals who have already taken the mandated child abuse reporting course and have been working in the field for a number of years. We will explore the warning signs of child abuse and neglect, the newest laws and procedures related to reporting, how to best work with child protective services and foster care, and answer any questions related to how to best work with maltreated children.

What We’re Missing: Can we identify bullies before they start acting out? Could ADHD really be misdiagnosed trauma? Where does conduct disorder come from? this training will help you better understand children’s difficult behaviors and what your team can do about them.
