RCC, RCPH presenting “Offering Hope by Understanding Trauma and Building Resilience”

ASHEBORO (Sept. 23, 2020)

Randolph Community College and Randolph County Public Health are presenting “Offering Hope by Understanding Trauma and Building Resilience” in October and November.

The free class will empower professionals and individuals who work with children and adolescents to build awareness and education by providing skills to recognize the signs and effects of trauma. Children who live in families with substance use disorders and mental health issues take on a set of behaviors and symptoms that play out in a variety of settings. With this training, participants will acquire the skills necessary to create a trauma-informed environment. This training will present the ACEs questionnaire (Adverse Childhood Experiences) to help increase community awareness and will provide local resources for children.

Those interested in taking the course can choose from one of the following: Monday and Wednesday, Oct. 12 and 14, from 6-9 p.m. in rooms 103 and 107 of the Continuing Education & Industrial Center (CEIC) on the Asheboro Campus (in class #73050 or online #74783); or Saturday, Nov. 7, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in the JB & Claire Davis Training Center in the CEIC with lunch provided (#74782). A free workbook also will be provided.

The cost for these classes is being generously paid for by a grant from the ABC Board and funding from Randolph County Public Health.

Space is limited. CDC guidelines will be followed for classes held on campus. To enroll in these classes, call 336-633-0268.
