Description: This workshop for parents and professionals is presented by Alana Steinberg, Esq. Up to 50% of today's youth have experienced or witnessed traumatic events in their lifetime. Exposure to trauma such as domestic violence, physical, or emotional abuse, death, divorce, or incarceration of a parent, can have serious implications on a student's ability to succeed in school. This workshop will explore the ways in which trauma can impact a child's behavior, academic performance, and peer and teacher relationships. It will also discuss what can be done to help support these children in the academic setting. Pre-registration required. To apply for a scholarship, call Lois Solomon-Neal at 914-347-7039 x100.
