.5 CEU

Children Under Stress

Researchers from the University of Michigan identified that stress in children ranks in the top five child health concerns (C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, 2010). Some stress is both normal and, in fact, healthy, as it gives us opportunities for growth, such as finding strategies to manage one’s fear of the dark. Stress in moderation supports the learning process as it can be motivating and increase productivity. However, when traumatic stress causes imbalance in a child’s life, it can have life-long negative consequences. In this course, we will identify some of the causes of traumatic stress in children, such as grief, illness, poverty, abuse, witnessing violence, and other traumatic events. Participants will learn more about the signs and causes of traumatic stress and strategies to help young children who are coping with trauma and stress.
