If you want to create a culture of safety and support in your school, you need to understand how trauma impacts people. It can cause dysregulation in students, staff, and faculty, which prevents effective learning and teaching. This workshop provides practical strategies for implementing five key principles of trauma-informed schools: promoting awareness, shifting attitudes, providing choice, fostering safety, and highlighting strengths.

You will learn about the impact of trauma on individuals and schools, plan how to build a safe place for students, and identify ways to respond with compassion to students in crisis. This workshop teaches you how to create a trauma-informed school culture at all levels.
