Event description

Description

Trauma can alter the way we view ourselves, the world around us and change how we process information. This affects the way we behave and respond to our environment. Without trauma informed support and strategies, these responses can lead to learning deficiencies, performance problems, and problematic behaviors.

This training will focus on strengths based, resilience focused interventions that reduce trauma-related symptoms and support growth.

This training will also feature a screening of Paper Tigers. Paper Tigers explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and toxic stress on struggling teens. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to disciplining students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in eveything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of trauma-informed educational strategies. This documentary is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving, "That one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person's life."
