BEGINING THE JOURNEY

Cornerstones of Care and Truman Medical Center Behavioral Health's Center for Trauma Informed Innovation are excited to sponsor our 3rd Annual Trauma Sensitive Schools Team Summit!

Trauma Sensitive Schools acknowledge the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences and understand the systemic impact of chronic stress. Trauma Sensitive Schools help all students feel safe to learn. They provide a respectful environment that enables students and staff to build caring relationships, self-regulate their emotions, and build resilience. Trauma-sensitive schools focus on what the adults do and how the adults can support students.

Trauma Sensitive Schools Team Summit 1.0 is designed for schools that are beginning their journey to implement trauma informed learning practices. Interdisciplinary teams from schools and districts will be empowered to build a compassionate culture that creates safety and accelerates learning. This experiential workshop will provide the foundational knowledge and practical strategies needed to develop an implementation plan unique to the needs of your school environment. We are excited to bring in Heather T. Forbes with Beyond Consequences as our keynote speaker.

The cost for this event is $4000/team. You may register today without being charged. We will invoice your school upon completion of the event. Please see FAQs below for more details.

We hope you can join us for this four-day event at the beautiful Kauffman Conference Center in Kansas City, Missouri. The schedule is 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. daily. Continental breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. A detailed schedule will be sent as the Summit date approaches.

FAQs

Who should attend this summit?

Interdisciplinary teams of 4-5 staff members from schools and districts that are interested in building a cohort for advancing their own TSS initiative to build Resilient Schools. In order to prepare a school for implementation, a school administrator must attend the entire conference. The team should be committed professionals who are empowered to be part of creating a strategic plan for their school/district in implementing TSS.

Do I have to come with a team?

Because this Summit is built around the team concept, we are requiring that each participating school/district send a team. It is recommended team members are motivated to become Trauma Sensitive School champions!

How do I register for this event?

You will need to select a team leader to begin group registration on Eventbrite. After the leader has created the group registration, he or she will email the link to the rest of the team members. Each team member needs to complete registration. It is recommended that your team members are identified prior to registration. Summit 1.0 is for new teams. Schools are allowed to register more than one team.

How do we pay for registration?

We will invoice your school for payment following the summit. Your team leader will need to provide the billing information for your school when registering your team on Eventbrite.
