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.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
