Understanding Conflict & Implementing Trauma-Informed Care
The focus of this workshop will be the understanding of conflict and aggression with young children (0-5 years old) and the introduction of pedagogical practices that support educators in managing conflict and reducing stress. Participants will develop an understanding of the neurobiology of the brain, the fight-flight-freeze survival stress response in young children and the impacts of stress in young children’s lives. Trauma and trauma-informed care will be discussed with an invitation to engage with trauma-informed pedagogical practices that include the HighScope Educational Research Foundation’s 6-step approach to problem-solving with young children. Participants will develop an implementation plan to incorporate trauma-informed care and the problem‐solving approach into their early childhood settings.
