Roots of Resilience: Teachers Awakening Children’s Healing is looking for early learning teachers for our second year of development.

Roots of Resilience is an online professional development program about the impact of trauma on children and how early learning teachers can strengthen resilience. The program consists on an online course and a video-based coaching program. This year, teachers can choose to do either the course or the coaching or both! Teachers will receive 30 hours of Set Two training for the online course and 2 hours of Set One training and 6 hours of Set Two training for the coaching.

Are you interested in gaining knowledge and skills about working with children who have experienced trauma? Do you believe there are children in your care who may have been exposed to child abuse or neglect, domestic violence, parents with untreated mental health or substance abuse problems? Our free online program could be a good fit for your learning needs.
