WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

The world faces increasing challenges every day. People are continually being exposed to violence, disaster, loss of, or separation from, family members and friends, deterioration in living conditions, inability to provide for one’s self and family, and lack of access to services. All these social e›ffects are not without immediate and long-term  consequences for children, families and communities with considerable impact on their ability to function and be fulfilled. They often leave emotional wounds which are less visible than the destruction of homes, but it often takes far longer to recover from emotional impact than to overcome material losses.

Trauma can undermine children’s ability to learn, form meaningful relationships and function appropriately in the classroom. More often than not, traumatic experience results in feelings of helplessness and alters one’s expectation, perception and understanding of the world. If not promptly dealt with, trauma could have negative impact on a child’s mental development and lead to acute stress reaction, post-traumatic stress disorder, adjustment disorder, or to the development of neurotic disorders.
In the wake of the recent socio-economic rehabilitation, schools can become environments that enable traumatized children to focus, behave appropriately, and learn. To reach this important goal, there is a great need to build the capacities of teachers to enable them adopt a framework and implement formulated action plan(s) that will weave trauma-sensitive approaches and provide individual supports to communities, parents, and students. This will in turn fast-track the realisation of the very laudable goals of education reforms. This training is therefore designed to equip participants with core techniques and methods in psychosocial support practices combined with basic pedagogical tools that will enhance the e›ffectiveness of teachers in handling traumatized children.
