Exposure to trauma is widespread and often has pervasive, detrimental impacts. Children who have experienced trauma may react in overly aggressive ways or exhibit escape-motivated behaviors that negatively affect their ability to interact appropriately with others. Using the principles of ABA, you can provide a safe, supportive environment for children without triggering interfering behaviors.

This online webinar is appropriate for teachers, administrators, parents, and caregivers.

Dr. Annette Little from Lipscomb University's Applied Behavior Analysis Program will present current information and effective strategies.
