Jumpstart your journey to being a more trauma-informed teacher- these basic tools will help you better serve students who have experienced trauma. We will learn together through group discussion, trying out strategies via case scenarios, experiential activities, and individual reflection.
Part 1: Building a shared understanding
What is trauma, how does it impact our students, and what is our role as educators?
Part 2: Self-reflection and self-awareness
How do our own experiences, past and present, influence our work, and what strategies can we use to be grounded in the work?
Part 3: Classroom strategies and interventions
What can we practically do in our classrooms to support students who have experienced trauma?
Part 4: Identifying next steps, building partnerships, and sharing resources
What resources and connections are available to us to continue developing our skills?
You’ll leave the workshop with concrete strategies, a personalized action/research plan, and resources for further learning.
