The earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have caused enormous havoc. In addition to all the suffering, many thousands of families with young children suffer from trauma-related complaints. IMH Nederland and Vakblad Vroeg organize the free webinar Trauma Informed Care on Tuesday evening April 25 for care providers who are in contact with these families. Not only in Turkey and Syria but also in the Netherlands and Belgium.
The webinar provides professionals with information about what to expect when dealing with these families. The speakers will discuss the consequences of trauma, stress and PTSD for pregnant women, babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Plus what can be done about it. Support for parents is also discussed.
