The training program with Natalia Podolyak includes theoretical and practical blocks for different groups of educators. The classes help educators develop knowledge about psychological traumatology and provide specific techniques and methods to reduce stress and emotional stress.
During the training, educators learn about stress and trauma, classifying traumatic events, and the first steps to improve a child’s emotional state.
When working with children, do we know what can become a “forbidden” phrase and wound a person even more? Instead, there are also expressions that help a child heal. For example, the words “I’ll help you” and “we’ll cope together” help to restore psychological balance, while the words “don’t cry, you’re a man”, “it’s okay”, “I warned you, don’t do that”, etc. will traumatize the child.
Children’s reactions to traumatic events differ depending on their age. During the training, teachers learn about the bodily manifestations, emotions, thoughts, and behavior of children under 6, 7-11, and 12-16 years old.
Most importantly, they receive the necessary information about what psychological assistance should be provided in each case.
