  • Learn de-escalation techniques that work with children who have experienced trauma
  • Learn steps you can use with children to help them regulate their emotions through co-regulation techniques until they are ready to self-regulate
  • Learn classroom management techniques and strategies that help children build better coping skills
  • Learn about problem-based learning and work with others on case studies to learn the best way to identify a student’s classroom/personal issues and calculate the best path forward.
