Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma

Trumbull Career and Technical Center (TCTC) in conjunction with and Ashland University present:

Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Anxiety, Stress, and
Trauma: A Healing Guide for Classroom Teachers, Counselors,
Social Workers, and Psychologists

Over the last few years there has been a significant increase in anxiety, stress and trauma among children,
adolescents, and adults of all ages. In this workshop, the causes and effects of stress, anxiety and trauma will be
examined to help educators and caregivers experience and provide safe and effective healing strategies.
Integrative concepts that will be reviewed and discussed include The Three Stage Consensus Healing Model,
the anxiety feedback loop, ongoing vs. significant event trauma, types of anxiety including panic attacks, the
instinctive trauma response, The Triune Brain, hypervigilance, hypo-vigilance, the fight/flight response, freeze
and dissociation, anxiety and trauma triggers, therapeutic interventions, co-regulation and mirror neurons, self-
regulation and affect regulation. Participants will also learn and experience brain-based healing strategies that
integrate the “power of the mind” with “the wisdom of the body.”
