Child trauma toolkit for parents and caregivers
RedOak is organizing a series of Trauma workshop for parents and caregivers of children affected by the Beirut Explosion and current crisis happening around the country.
This workshop training will provide content that enables children to get through the tough traumatic experience, i.e. the traumatic impact of the explosion, but also cumulative toxic stress and potential trauma from the overall situation and context in Lebanon (and how children observe/understand/interpret it): ex. COVID-19, loss of household income/livelihoods, grief and loss, disruption to schooling and routines, unclear return to “normalcy”, tensions in the region. The trainer will be providing information regarding the effect of trauma on our brains, the parenting mistakes that we may do after surviving a trauma, how the trauma is indirectly affecting the child's behavior, the misconceptions that parents have about the child's behavior, and the strategies and techniques that should be followed step-by-step to help children overcome this trauma.
Participation is free, places are limited.
