A FREE, VIRTUAL COURSE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN & YOUTH
WHY CHOOSE TO BE TRAUMA AWARE?
Presented by the Luna Child and Youth Advocacy Centre with support from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Being Trauma Aware is a FREE e-learning course meant to equip and empower participants to approach interactions within their organizations compassionately and to be curious about any trauma that may be affecting current behaviour. From there, the course outlines the path to resilience through tangible steps and best practices. Divided into 5 modules, the course can easily be paused and resumed at your convenience.
Childhood maltreatment has a significant and a wide ranging impact on physical, mental and emotional health and is a consistent risk factor for early onset of substance use in adolescence. But thankfully, resilience after trauma is a positive and adaptive response anyone can cultivate if given the right environment, information and support. By educating yourself, you can provide that kind of support to the children & youth in your care.
This is a free course! You need only the time and desire to educate and empower yourself to be a support to children who have been exposed to maltreatment.
Course can be completed in as little as 3 hours and can be paused and resumed as needed. The course design allows you to learn when you can and save progress as you go.
Complete the course at work or at home. Progress is saved to your account. Once complete, you will have virtual access to the course resources indefinitely.
