Children of Trauma

On Demand

This video course with Dr. Caelan Soma (formerly Kuban) lays the foundation that supports the evidence-based structured sensory interventions TLC developed. The research was completed in school and agency settings to ensure the actual programs could be supported in the environments where children are accessible.

Learner will be able to:
  • Distinguish the differences between grief reactions and trauma reactions.
  • Examine the wide range of adverse experiences that can cause trauma reactions.
  • Explore how trauma impacts brain functions of memory, emotional regulation, behavior and learning.
  • Demonstrate how to be a caring, curious witness to help trauma survivors heal.

This course promotes calm conversations by structuring activities in three areas (breathing exercises, rhythm routines and drawing/writing) and offering opportunities for children to socially engage through these structured activities in a small group format. The activities can be presented to a child/teen individually, in small group or in a classroom context. Using brain science and focusing on both the inner (sensations, images, feelings) and outer worlds (location, safety of that environment), strategies are thoughtfully introduced to promote self-regulation, positive connection and, ultimately, academic and social readiness to succeed. Course consists of reading and test. CEs included.

Learning Objectives:

The participant will learn how to:

  • Foster self-regulation in child/teen.
  • Promote learning readiness.
  • Reduce disruptive behaviors.
  • Enhance counselor/psychologist/teacher’s role as co-regulator of students.
  • Improve child/teen self-confidence.
  • Mobilize and motivate the child/teen by offering exercises that teach how to control body sensations, images, thoughts and feelings.
