The Lourdes University Parent Institute presents “Recognizing Trauma in Children” on Tuesday, November 14 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. in Regina Hall, 6832 Convent Blvd., Sylvania. Designed for social workers and educators, the free continuing education workshop features Stephene Evans, MSW, LSW, OCPS, ECMHC, an Early Childhood Program Manager for A Renewed Mind, a mental health, substance, drug and alcohol abuse center. The workshop is full with no additional seats available.

“The purpose and overall goal of this workshop is to help mental health professionals and educators understand what is meant by trauma, recognize the developmental context of trauma in early childhood, and extend their own knowledge of assessment and intervention,” offers Dr. Terry Keller, Dean of the College of Social Sciences. “Individuals working with children must be prepared to recognize and address trauma and effectively link children and their families to valuable resources and, when needed, effective therapeutic intervention.”

“Recognizing Trauma in Children” is approved for three continuing education hours for social workers by Ohio’s Counselor, Social Worker & Marriage and Family Therapist Board (CSWMFT). The workshop is full with no additional seats available.
