Educators community trauma workshop

Emerging Minds, Australia, 2019

This workshop has been designed to help deliver professional development training activities to teachers and child care professionals to develop their knowledge and skills in:

  • Preparing children both practically and psychologically for a potential natural disaster
  • Assisting and protecting children during a natural disaster event; and
  • Identifying emotional and behavioural difficulties in children following a natural disaster event.

The core outcome of the training is for educators to be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to promote resilience and coping, and decrease long-term adverse reactions in children (aged 0-12 years) following a natural disaster event.
