NEW Project Child Trainings - June 24 & 30
   Project Child continues its mission to provide education for professionals in our community, which sometimes means adapting to circumstances beyond our control, like COVID 19.
   In light of this, we have had to postpone until the fall the training by Cathleen Palm.
   Project Child is now offering two on-line trainings: June 24th and June 30th with Dr. H. Elizabeth Coyle.

     June 24th: Trauma Informed Support for Youth and Families during the Pandemic 
    This session explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and families who have a previous history of experiencing trauma in their lives. It focuses on three areas that inform our work with those we serve: the cascading effects of trauma on children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development; the range of traumatic stress reactions to the pandemic that youth and adults may have and its cumulative influence on outcomes; and strategies that address the immediate and long-term needs of families within the context of available community resources.
    Learning Objectives:  (2.5 CECs)  9am-11:30am $35.00  (Both for $65)
