Webinar: Talking Trauma With Young Children

Jun 30, 2022

Supporting young children during times of crisis

With ongoing violence in public spaces and media coverage of these events, young children–including infants and toddlers–may be experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety.

Dr. Renee Boynton-Jarrett, MD and Dr. Chandra Ghosh Ippen, PhD, experts on child trauma, have a candid conversation about how adults, whether caregivers, early education professionals, or advocates, can navigate conversations with young children to support the overall well-being of children and of themselves.

This event was co-sponsored by Child Care Aware® of America and ZERO TO THREE.
