Event description
Guiding schools in assessment and design of actionable systems and practices to meet the needs of children & teens with trauma impacts.

About this Event

Content:

Conducting a trauma-informed care training is a good start, but how can schools continue the journey of meeting the needs of children with trauma histories, and how do we measure that progress?

What does it mean for schools to not only create awareness, but continue to grow in all areas of trauma-informed core principles to become fully Trauma-Invested in practices and processes?

When we create systems and processes that meet the needs of students with impacts of trauma, we can be assured that our systems meet the needs of ALL students to achieve.

What will I learn?

  • PRINCIPLES that clearly define what it means for a system or an individual classroom to be trauma-informed
  • COMPARISONS of how traditional systems align to trauma-informed principles as compared to trauma-informed systems
  • PROCESSES to assess where your classroom, school or agency is currently at on the journey to becoming trauma-informed
  • ACTIVITIES to plan actionable steps and strategies to continue down the road to becoming more trauma-informed
  • APPLICATION of how to take the information learned and create successful and effective systems, routines and approaches

This workshop-style training is intended for educators - administrators, classroom teachers, school counselors, educational assistants, etc. Participants will experience a combination of didactic instruction, visuals, and examples, followed by hands-on creation of a plan to take back to their particular setting to implement with students who struggle due to trauma impacts or other causes of chronic challenging behavior.
