Trauma Sensitive Schools
Unaddressed trauma can lead to violence, and in turn, providing support for students who have experienced trauma can prevent violence and create stronger communities. This workshop defines trauma, gives examples of how it can manifest in the classroom and school building, and offers practical tips on how educators can incorporate trauma-sensitive practices and perspectives into the classroom and school community.
This program is FREE for educators. In person trainings are from 9am-3pm and offer 5.5 professional development credits. Virtual trainings are 3 hours at various times and offer 3 professional development credits. Please note that all programs are virtual until further notice. Please visit our Events Page to see our current offerings.
All in person trainings max out at 30 participants and virtual trainings at 60 participants. To be put on a wait list for a training, please click here.
