Trauma-Informed Schools

Reaching & Teaching Challenging Students

Slider

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Students entering the classroom with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues are often at a disadvantage and struggle to keep up with the demands of traditional learning. Brains affected by trauma require a different kind of instruction—and a special kind of care. The goal of teaching children with trauma becomes unlocking the potential that exists within every student and developing an instructional approach that recognizes and works past the stresses, traumas, and self-imposed mentalities and behaviors that can limit learning and achievement.

Teachers will leave this workshop with strategies to build resiliency and grit in even the most challenging students, ideas for encouraging positive behavior and creating effective classroom management, and a plan of action that can be immediately put in place to start increasing student motivation. You’ll also receive an exclusive digital resource bundle that can be used for easy classroom implementation. Additionally, the workshop will focus on self-care habits, helping teachers to avoid adopting students’ traumas as their own and ensuring that personal triggers are understood and dealt with before they lead to classroom disruptions.
