Creating and Sustaining Trauma-Informed Schools (Winter 2018)

0 Lessons

Workshop Description/Overview:

Trauma is a pervasive, damaging and costly public health problem that is a near-universal experience for students with severe social, emotional and behavioral problems. Trauma damages the parts of the brain that students most need for school and life success. The Trauma-Informed approach helps create a safe and responsive school environment that improves self-regulation, reduces behavioral problems and enhances student engagement. By adopting a Trauma-Informed approach, schools undertake a paradigm shift at the staff and organizational level to understand, recognize and address the needs of students impacted by trauma.

Target AudienceEducators of all Kinds: Teachers, Administrators, Counselors, Intervention Specialists, School Psychologists, Parents, etc.
