About this event
The Anna Freud Centre is announcing a series of free webinars aimed at all early years practitioners.
This webinar will look at:- Supporting children in early years settings who may have experienced trauma and abuse on June 24th, 16:30-18:00.
We decided to run this event because the early years practitioners we consulted said this was one of the key issues they would like support with. When we surveyed nursery staff last year, 69% said they had experienced working with children affected by trauma or abuse, and 71% said they had worked with children affected by domestic violence.
Sadly, a large number of early years workers are likely to come across children who have experienced some kind of trauma during their work. Trauma can be caused by a range of events and experiences. Some children may have encountered neglect, abuse, or violence, and others might be dealing with the fall out from an accident, bereavement or natural disaster.
This webinar will offer early years workers clear and practical guidance on how they can manage the needs of children in their care who have experienced some kind of trauma. It will look at the different reactions young children may have, and explore a range of ways that you might be able to manage their needs, and support them as best you can within your setting.
Who is this webinar for?
The event will be open to anyone in the early years sector interested in attending. All early years practitioners are welcome including nursery managers and staff, childminders, children centre managers and any other childcare practitioners.
