This is 3 credit hour course based on Helping Traumatized Children Learn – A Report and Policy Agenda from the Massachusetts Advocates for Children: Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative.

Helping Traumatized Children Learn is the result of an extraordinary collaboration among educators, parents, mental health professionals, community groups, and attorneys determined to help children experiencing the traumatic effects of exposure to family violence succeed in school. Participants will have the opportunity to investigate the many aspects of trauma, including physical/mental health consequences, how trauma affects learning, how to help students suffering from trauma, current legislation, and numerous resources.
