There’s little doubt in my mind that the last several months have had profound negative impacts on our children (and on you!). Social and physical distancing, the disruption of normal life, and jarring racial inequities and violence have taken their toll on everyone’s mental health—kids especially.
Trauma caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, racism, and innumerable tragedies in this country and around the world needs to be addressed. There’s a statistic I usually refer to that barely skims the surface of the severity of the mental health crisis currently happening in this country:
46% of students under 17 have experienced a traumatic event, and 26% of children under four have experienced a traumatic event.
These percentages are likely increasing by the very day.
So how do we show up for our children? How do we support them as we all survive this ordeal? And how do you support yourself because somehow your job has just become even harder.
Trauma-Informed Schools equips educators with the tools they need in order to reach and teach children who’ve lived through trauma.
This professional development course will prepare you with key insights into how to really help the children who walk into your classroom each day. And it’s a self-paced course which means you or your school can take the course in bite-sized chunks.
