The Invisible Suitcase Part I - What It Is and Why Does It Matter?

Children in your care can exhibit challenging behavior that is difficult to manage at times. Many of the children who come into resource care bring with them a history of experiencing trauma. But did you know that they also bring beliefs about themselves, their caregivers, and the world as a result of the trauma they have experienced? In Part 1 of the Invisible Suitcase, you will learn about the beliefs that children often bring into their resource homes and how these beliefs are connected to their challenging, and at times puzzling, behavior.

Presented by: Central Maine Youth Trauma Initiative (CMYTI), a National Child Traumatic Stress Network grant-funded project of  MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Edmund Ervin Pediatric Center is offering four online Resource Parent/Kinship Caregiver trainings. The trainings are free and count toward relicensing education hours. Each training is scheduled for 90 minutes to allow for 60 minutes of training, and 30 minutes of discussion/networking for those who are interested.
