Trauma-Informed Care Training – Seattle
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
This training will prepare volunteers with the context to support and care for children who come from a background of trauma. By understanding the perspective of the children, volunteers will be better equipped to offer support in vulnerable situations, will be more aware and sensitive about what is said in front of the children, and will be prepared for the sometimes difficult conversations that can come up during a volunteer’s shift.
Both De-escalation and Trauma Informed Care are required for all Emergency Sanctuary volunteers and highly recommended for all volunteers who interact with children in their roles.
