Many children in care have experienced trauma, which can impact how they react to circumstances and events that remind them of the abuse and cause them to escalate. There are many techniques caregivers can use to help children de-escalate. This course explores escalation, its causes, and strategies for de-escalation. To get the most out of this course, it is strongly recommended that trainees first take Trauma-Informed Parenting.

This was amazingly helpful as we have a child who has anger issues and escalates sometimes easily. It provided guidance for us to help him and us cope! I am excited to work on this new skill!!
