Coping with Crises and Traumatic Events – a FREE Course from ChildCare Education Institute
Children develop varying degrees of coping skills during times of crisis and trauma. Children are especially vulnerable, and they need the support of early childhood professionals in order to navigate adversity, while gaining tools to positively cope with crises and traumatic events.
Child trauma and its results cannot be viewed through a simple lens of cause and effect. There are layers to crises and trauma that involve the type of trauma, severity, and how long a child is subjected to the crisis. The multidimensional aspects of appropriate crisis and trauma interventions must also take into account a child’s age and developmental status, as well as other familial, economic, and cultural factors. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all remedy for crisis and trauma, but there are best practices and tools to help our families and children. As early childhood caregivers and teachers, gaining the appropriate tools to help guide our nation’s children involves a framework that identifies and facilitates key insights in a strength-oriented approach to coping and recovery from crises and traumatic events.
