Children Disaster Services Offers Fall Workshops

Posted by on Aug 9, 2012 in Children, Training | 0 comments

Children Disaster Services (CDS) offers a 27-hour workshop that provides participants the opportunity to learn to provide comfort and encouragement to children by offering the healing young children need in traumatic situations. They learn to create a safe, friendly environment that gives children the chance to engage in therapeutic play activities designed to relieve stress and calm fears.

This workshop includes a simulated shelter experience (an overnight stay) and will be provided to any group of 15 or more adults interested in working with children after a disaster. Participants completing the course will have the opportunity to become certified Children’s Disaster Services volunteers.

The website, CDS Workshop Dates and Registration Opportunities, provides a listing of the dates and locations of the workshops.  You can also register online.
