Top Tips to Support Children in Times of Uncertainty, Stress, and Transitions

Learn in this 2-hour training concrete strategies to support children ages 0-18 when faced with BIG and SMALL life events that cause uncertainty and stress. Children in foster, adoptive or relative caregiver homes who have experienced early childhood trauma and disrupted attachment already have high sensitivity to stress, uncertainty and transitions, so what can we do as parents and caregivers to build resilience and felt safety? Examples of high stress, uncertainty and life transition include removal and foster care placement, moving homes, returning from summer break, coming back to school from extended absences, divorce, loss, stressful or traumatic events (fires, COVID-19, tornadoes, flooding) or starting school for the first time. Learn concrete strategies to help children build resilience and to feel safe at different developmental stages in uncertain, stressful or transition times.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn to describe a big life change/transition for children and teens
  2. Explain the impact of big life changes/transitions for children and teens
  3. List the Top T.I.P.S (Trauma Informed Practices and Strategies) to support children and teens with big life transition
  4. Concrete strategies to help children build resilience and felt safety.
  5. How to support our children and teens during transitions daily.
