Spring 2017 Embracing the Traumatized Child through Art

Workshop

Saturday, February 25, 2017; 9 am – 12 noon

FREE, 3 CDPUs

This workshop training is designed to help teachers recognize students in class who may be dealing with trauma. Signs and symptoms will be discussed as well as current neurological research. In addition, teachers will engage in art activities they can use in the classroom to encourage relaxation and will try our occupational therapy techniques that can help traumatized students succeed.

Presenter: Evelyne Tardy, Art Educator at Gerber School in Urbana
