Audience: Designed for any helping professional


Starr Commonwealth holds its Trauma & Resilience Conference annually, to ensure as many people as possible have access to the best tools and programs to bring about meaningful change in the children they serve.

Mental health disorders are the most common diseases of childhood. Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Focused Assessment & Differential Diagnosis will provide participants an understanding of the significant overlapping symptomology between mental health disorders and childhood trauma, and a clear view of what it looks like in schools and classrooms. In addition, the gap between the need and treatment of mental health problems in schools will be discussed. Participants will learn practical ways they can help, including: reducing the stigma of mental health, bridging the gaps between treatment and need, and focusing on fostering and nurturing characteristics of resilience in students. 

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to: 

  • Compare at least five ways a trauma-informed, resilience-focused assessment is different than a standardized assessment
  • Identify the overlapping symptomology between trauma and at least two other common mental health disorders
  • Describe the pathway of a dysregulated central nervous system to the use of at-risk coping behaviors
  • Name five common characteristics found in the drawings of traumatized children
  • Provide a list of at least 3 assessment activities most helpful with school-age children as a result of taking this course

Included with enrollment:

  • Guidebook
  • CEs
  • Lunch
