Understanding Childhood Trauma

Ready to enroll?
This module gives you a broader understanding of how children and adolescents experience trauma, and how to work with them in a positive, trauma-informed way. You’ll also gain a deeper understanding of how childhood trauma affects adults, how remnants of one’s childhood trauma might show up in a yoga class, and how to create an environment that helps adults to be compassionate with and work to heal these traumatized parts of themselves. You’ll learn trauma-informed teaching techniques that can be used specifically for children and teens, including intentional breathing practices, somatic experiencing, tapping and drumming, and mindfulness.
