Event description

Description

Trauma, No D-Code Drama

Adolescents are more susceptible to adverse childhood experiences (psychological trauma) during what Erikson described as the” identity versus role confusion stage.” Pubescent brains are pruning; trauma or toxic stress can substantially disrupt brain development, changing how they respond to perceived threats. In schools, students’ trigger reactions (fight, flight or freeze) are categorized as disruptive, defiant, and/or disrespectful (D-Codes) resulting in more punitive disciplinary consequences.

Learning Objectives:

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Develop an understanding of how trauma imprints on the brain
  • Analyze how student responses can present as defiance/disrespect.
  • Gain research/evidence-based, non-punitive disciplinary responses to subjective behaviors.
