School-aged children are presenting with increasingly high levels of trauma. Newcomer and migrant students have the potential to bring an unprecedented level of trauma and complexity exacerbated by their migratory lifestyle and limited access to resources. Teachers and service providers play an important role in supporting and stabilizing students when interacting in the school environment. An overview of trauma and culturally competent strategies to support Hispanic and Latino students and their families students will be presented.
Upon registration, the webinar link can be found within the "Materials" tab of this event.
