Merrimack Regional Meeting

  • 15 Feb 2016
  • 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
  • Dr. Crisp Elementary School in Nashua
You are invited to join school counselors in Nashua to attend a "Children and Trauma" workshop. Presented by Linda Douglas, Trauma Specialist at the NH Coalition about Domestic and Sexual Violence, this workshop will address the impact of trauma on brain development and school performance. Children who witness violence and/or depend upon parents who have been victimized or are perpetrators of abuse may face difficulties. Exposure to such experiences may have a tremendous impact on the child's developing brain. Fortunately, strong, healthy attachments will assist children in developing resilient, well-functioning brains. Ms. Douglas will discuss how witnessing violence and/or experiencing trauma will impact the brain and will provide models for facilitating positive parent-child interactions leading to a more resilient child.
