Parent Connect

Posted 9/27/2018 by J. Raffeinner

“Helping Kids and everyone who loves them deal with Trauma” is the topic of the next Carroll County Parent Connect meeting, sponsored by Carroll County Public School Division (CCPSD). “We are very pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to our community. It will give parents, guardians, childcare providers, church childcare volunteers, and teachers a better understanding of trauma and how it affects the people they love and care for.” said CCPSD Licensed Professional Counselor, Denice Olinger. “CCPSD has made a commitment this year to train all teachers and administrators in Trauma Informed Care. We know that trauma can dramatically impact learning in the classroom and we want all students to be successful.”

The presenter will be Catherine Burcham, LCSW with Mount Rogers Community Services Board. Trauma Informed Care involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. No one is immune to the impact of trauma. Trauma affects the individual, families, and communities by disrupting healthy development, adversely affecting relationships, and contributing to mental health issues. Catherine Burcham, LCSW will provide information to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma. She will help us to understand that people often have many different types of trauma in their lives and those who have been traumatized need support and understanding from the people around them. Often, trauma survivors can be re-traumatized by well-meaning caregivers and community service providers. Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control.

The Carroll County Parent Connect program will be at Gladeville Elementary School on Tuesday, October 2, 2018. A free meal will begin at 5 PM in the cafeteria. The program for parents, guardians, grandparents, and community members will begin at 6 PM.

Reading for Life AmeriCorps members will be providing activities for children. For more information contact Denice Olinger at 276-730-3207 or dmolinge@ccpsd.k12.va.us.
