Continuing the Conversation: Trauma-Informed Instruction

Improving Students' Learning Potential by Strengthening Relationships

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Robin Gurwitch

(click here for bio)

Many reasons exist for students to endure difficulties in the classroom including exposure to trauma or other stressful events (e.g., substance abuse in the home, grief, divorce, other separations, illness) and mental health concerns such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which symptoms resemble trauma reactions. When these issues are present, learning is affected and students’ abilities to meet their full potential are undermined.

Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE™) is a trauma-informed, field-initiated set of skills based on evidence-based programs with growing scientific support for its effectiveness. CARE uses specific skills designed for all adults who interact or work with children and teens. Adapted for use in the school and classroom settings, CARE utilizes a set of specific skills designed to a) connect with students in a positive way to improve social-emotional development and learning potential, b) increase compliance, and c) decrease mild to moderate problematic behaviors. The skills can help develop students’ self-confidence and resilience. CARE has been successfully implemented by thousands of adults in a variety of settings, including classrooms across the country.

This workshop provides an overview of trauma’s impact on learning and a focus on CARE in the Classroom training that can be effectively implemented in a classroom setting and contribute to positive relationships across the entire school environment. Finally, as teachers and other school staff are affected by students’ experiences, ideas to improve personal resilience and decrease compassion fatigue will be discussed.
