CMCC Offers Training on Attachment and Trauma
March 17, 2015
The Corporate and Community Services Department at Central Maine Community College is offering a two-day training program that aims to increase awareness of strategies for supporting self-regulation in young children. “Core Competency: Focusing on Attachment and Trauma,” will build on providers’ knowledge of the importance of a child’s primary attachment to their parents. Participants will discuss emotional, social and behavioral regulation in the child-parent relationship. Through a combination of lecture, group discussion, videos and print materials, participants will explore strategies for addressing challenging behaviors. This training will explore how trauma triggers could interfere with a child’s emotional and social development and cover the impact of trauma and chronic stress on young children.
Leading the training will be Judy Muller, LCSW, who has been working with children and their families in various settings for over 25 years. She is a national trainer of child-parent psychotherapy in association with the National Childhood Traumatic Stress Network.
The course will meet 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17 and Friday, May 1. Please contact Corporate & Community Services for more information at 207-755-5280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To register online please visit www.cmcc.edu/ccs/ProfessionalDevelopment.
