The Essence of Trauma-Informed Practices for Schools

November 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The field of psychological trauma has revealed many fundamental ways in which the brain operates under extreme stress. These insights are not just relevant for people with diagnosable PTSD, they are important to understand for anyone who has ever felt extreme stress, panic, or hurt. Through attending this session, participants will leave with an understanding of the essential neurobiology of traumatic stress, but in very practical, student-friendly and teacher-friendly terms. Participants will also be introduced to the key ways to talk to students in ways that de-escalate and help students feel safe, supported and known. Participants will also discuss how to help other school staff implement a trauma-informed lens for their school culture and how trauma-informed approaches complement and must precede more classic behavior management strategies.
