Children are changed by growing up with violence and abuse at home
In this module you will learn about the context of woman abuse, how it affects women and their parenting, and what can be done to support women. Woman abuse is a reportable situation in Canada. This module includes guidance in making a report to child protection agencies.
Emotional well-being and ability to connect with others form the foundation for learning, relationships and well-being throughout our lifetimes. This series will have five modules: Infancy, Toddler, Preschool and School-age. In this first module, you will explore what infants need to set the foundations of trust and attachment. We will focus on attachment relationships and describe the role played by co- and self-regulation.
This module is designed for anyone who wants a better understanding of the response of young, typically defenseless children, to experiences of trauma, family violence, abuse and neglect. Experts explain that most often, adults who are caring for and educating children do not realize that the child has experienced trauma and do not recognize their symptoms or needs. This module will appeal to a variety of early years and family support professionals, given the nature of the content.
Resilience is the ability to steer through serious life challenges and find ways to bounce back and to thrive. We are born with the capacity for resilience. But resilience is not something we have or don’t have. We work on it throughout our lives. Young children learn a lot by watching, and when a caregivers copes well with everyday stress, they are showing their children how to do the same.
