Free Online Workshop on Trauma and Education Hosted by Lauren Seltzer and Family First Services
On Wednesday, August 25 at 1:00-2:30 p.m. EST, join Lauren Seltzer, LMFT of Educational Resources Unlimited (ERU), an Integrative Educational and Therapeutic Consultation firm, and Mike Giresi, Director of Clinical Development of Family First Adolescent Services for “Complex Trauma & Education: Understanding the Impact of Early Trauma on Education.” This free online workshop will offer an overview of common difficulties within the realm of education and learning for adolescents from a complex trauma-informed lens. Early trauma has a profound impact on how humans experience and process information from their environment. Understanding the dynamics of complex trauma and their impact on the development of self-regulation, self-image and social engagement is crucial to supporting youth. In this workshop, participants will learn to define and describe complex trauma; explain complex trauma impact on information processing; and illustrate common learning disorders through a complex trauma lens.
Other workshops hosted by ERU and Family First include “An Introduction to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM®) for Healing Attachment, Relational, and Developmental Trauma.” “Our hope is to provide free opportunities to increase people’s awareness on trauma and how significant the impact is on the individual,” says Lauren. These engaging and informative workshops and live virtual training events are intended to educate and connect parents, educational consultants, behavioral health professionals and programs.
All are welcome to participate. Free CEUs are offered as part of the training. To RSVP or join our mailing list to stay up-to-date on new events, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
