Trauma Informed Applied Behavior Analysis
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.
