Upcoming 2019 Workshops

May 10, 2019

 

 

We are excited to announce that Multicultural Consulting Services has several upcoming workshops that we want to highlight. Through these workshops and training, individuals will gain greater cultural awareness to help benefit their organizations, community or company. These workshop and training opportunities are designed to facilitate positive interaction, reduce cultural misconceptions, and help individuals from different backgrounds explore ways of how to work together effectively in a global world. Here are all the upcoming workshops to look out for this year:

Children and Trauma (6 CEUs)

 

Date: Rescheduled for Spring 2020!

Who Should Attend:  Professionals, who work with children, and are interested in gaining the tools they need for working with children who have experienced trauma.

Specifics: Because children may not be able to verbalize what they feel after a traumatic experience, it is important for adults to understand the signs of a child who may be suffering from trauma. These traumas can be the result of intentional violence—such as child physical or sexual abuse, or domestic violence—or the result of natural disaster, accidents, or war. This workshop will provide attendees with the tools they need in identifying a child struggling with the effects of trauma, understanding how trauma can manifest itself in a child’s behavior, and how to best support a child who has experienced trauma.

Time: 9:30 A.M. – 4:30 P.M.

Location: DePaul University, Chicago IL
