The beginning of the year can be a wonderful time of growth and change for many people, but it also can be a time of stress and trauma.

What does stress and trauma do to the body? How can you be proactive if you know you are entering into a stressful time of year? What are some resources at home and in school for your children after experiencing trauma.  
This webinar will explore the standard definitions of trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how they affect lifelong health, and how early childhood trauma impacts infant/child brain development.
