Parental trauma workshop

Tickets are now on sale for: The impact of parental trauma on the health and developmental wellbeing of children and young people.

Teachers, educators and support teams acknowledge that parenting is not easy and some days parents struggle too. Sometimes these struggles can trigger trauma from a parent’s childhood that was not pleasant, and in some cases, abusive or violent. It may also be a result of domestic violence, grief, neglect or a parent may be temporarily unable to navigate current additional stressors in their lives.

This webinar will provide an opportunity for you to:

  • Understand how exposure to parental trauma affects the learning, behaviour and emotional reactivity of children and young people
  • Gain a better understanding of the impact of parental trauma on families and how it affects their experience in educational and support settings
  • Assist you in recognising and supporting trauma-affected parents to improve the wellbeing and learning outcomes for their children and young people

By joining this webinar, it will assist you in creating a deeper awareness of the impacts of parental trauma and how you can assist children, young people and their families, within your care and community who are experiencing these challenges.

This NESA approved webinar is suitable for teachers, educators, support workers and other professionals within the community who work with children and young people. It will contribute 2 hours of NESA registered PD addressing 6.2.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
