Overview

Trauma-informed practices go beyond our interactions with individual students. How can teachers create positive learning communities and make trauma-informed practices sustainable and consistent over time?

In this Virtual Workshop, participants will:

  • Define trauma and its impact
  • Explore examples of how to “practice positive” and foster student ownership
  • Build and get peer feedback on their plan to build a trauma-informed system

Audience

This session is ideal for teachers that are new or beginning to develop an understanding of trauma-informed practices. Engaging in this virtual experience will support teachers to identify a trauma response and be better prepared to support a student in need.

Specifications

  • 2 hours
  • Participants will need a computer with access to Zoom, a camera, a microphone, and stable Internet connectivity

Outcome

I create systems that enable teachers to use trauma-informed practices to support student learning.
