Trauma-Informed Rapport Building for School SLPs

Presented by AC Goldberg (he/him) PhD, CCC/SLP

September 14, 2024 
10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Members: $10

Non-Members: $60


During this webinar, clinicians will learn the tenets of trauma-informed care and the impact that systemic exclusion has on minoritized populations. We'll discuss holistic, client-centered approaches when working with students and families from all backgrounds. Clinicians will come away more confident in their abilities to meet the needs of their diverse caseloads while also developing an understanding of how to reduce disparities by making small adjustments to their own practices.

Note: Closed captioning is available during the webinar.
