Furthermore, learners will gain insights into expected social and emotional behaviors of children and teens along the stress continuum model, enabling them to recognize signs of potential mental health disorders and determine when professional help is necessary. Additionally, the training explores the impact of adverse childhood events and emphasizes the importance of implementing positive childhood events for fostering better mental well-being.
