Working with Children Who Have a Trauma History


Amanda White, MSW, LCSW


Children who experience any type of trauma often exhibit a variety of emotional responses, such as anger, anxiety, hypervigilance, depression or emotional numbing. This training will provide an overview of the types of trauma that children may experience (including physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and witnessing domestic violence). The emotional and behavioral impact of trauma will also be explored in depth. Participants will gain knowledge about treatment interventions for children with a trauma background. Specifically TF-CBT (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy), group therapy, art therapy and family therapy will be discussed. 

  • PCS provides light refreshments at all trainings. Lunch is not provided.  Please bring a packed lunch as there will be a brief working lunch.
  • By attending a PCS training, you are giving PCS permission to videotape you and any discussion you participate in for video training purposes.
