Description

The project will bring a presentation about Trauma-Informed Early Childhood Services (TIECS) to campus on Thursday, February 16, 2017. The TIECS training was developed by early childhood trauma experts affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry at Dartmouth in response to the disturbing increase in the number of young children experiencing trauma in NH and nationwide. It is intended to train early childhood educators, social workers, and others who work with young children and families. This 2 1/2 hour training is sponsored through a grant from the NH Maternal and Child Health program, in collaboration with the NH Child Development Bureau, the Community Health Institute, and the NH Preschool Technical Assistance Network. The training is offered by Trauma Specialists with expertise in early childhood intervention and children's mental health. They will provide the training for about 50 participants, including 28 Early Childhood Studies majors, 3 Early Childhood Studies faculty, 15 Social Work majors, 2 Social Work faculty, and 2 teachers from the PSU Center for Young Children and Families. Following the training, the Trauma Specialists will consult for one hour with Early Childhood Studies and Social Work faculty about how the training content can be integrated into our programs of study
