The goal of this one-day training is to equip participants with the knowledge of the impact of trauma on the development and behavior of children and youth and the skills to help traumatized students thrive. One out of three children in the United States will experience at least one traumatic event by age 16. These experiences frequently elicit a traumatic stress response, which can impact students’ learning, behavior, formation of relationships, and accomplishment of developmental tasks. Activities in this training will help participants to integrate trauma informed practices into the school culture and provide a supportive learning environment.
This training is appropriate for school psychologists, social workers, counselors, administrators, teachers, and SpEd Directors.
