Helping Kids Heal: Trauma Sensitive Strategies for the Classroom
This two part training will equip teachers and administrators to foster a healing-centered approach in schools that will help children feel safe, connected, and ready to learn.

Trauma is arguably the most pressing crisis in education today. In this time of a global pandemic and other adverse experiences that affect children—including systemic racial injustice it is critical to have an understanding about trauma and its effects on student’s brains and bodies. Approximately, twenty percent of students have a diagnosable mental health condition. Research shows that trauma is at the root of most of these mental health challenges. (Kidscount.org) Sadly, only a fraction of these children will receive any type of mental health intervention to deal with their experiences. However, 100% of these children are likely to attend school.

While the impact of trauma is not always visible, its effects are far reaching and have serious consequences. Often the symptoms of trauma are confused with other mental health diagnoses and teachers struggle to understand how to provide support. Educators are uniquely positioned to show empathy and develop supportive and caring relationships with students, which can buffer the effects of trauma

Training Objectives:

1. Examine the critical components of the definition of trauma

2. Understand the ACE study and current research on trauma

3. Understand how the brain and body respond to stress

4. Learn strategies for calming the nervous system
