An Update from the CPLC

The Continuous Professional Learning Committee Support Group has been working closely with Dr. Barbara Ward from the Waterloo Region District School Board to develop and support trauma informed learnings and resources across our community that are centred around the three pillars of belonging.

Through the CYPT training and learnings survey that was sent in late 2020, the group has noted that the area of trauma informed approaches in serving children, youth and families has become especially relevant for members’ day-to-day work. In supporting system-level learning opportunities, the CPLC group has recently concluded two planning sessions with Dr. Ward and other members of the CYPT and are now in the process of developing short and longer-term action items to better support community members in this specific area.
