The Trauma of Poverty in Early Childhood
This four-day course will explore impacts of high poverty on children focusing on their learning and social emotional development. Participants will focus on defining, identifying, and understanding poverty-related stress in early childhood development, behavior, and learning. The goal is to help children, families, and programs to support and protect diverse and vulnerable learners. The structure of the learning and tasks will vary each day and will include writing assignments, discussion, and hands-on individual or group-based activities. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of teachers and care givers using a variety of learning styles, presentations, and source materials.
