Trauma-Informed Classrooms: Moving Theory into Practice

December 6, 2017

Traumatic events can have long-term and negative consequences on those who have experienced such events, including children and youth. Although traumatic events may influence each child differently, some traumatic events may result in learning deficiencies, adversely impacted cognitive processes (e.g., problems with attention and memory, limited problem-solving skills, etc.), undermined school performance, and frequent behavioral challenges.
 
In this webinar, presenters will discuss ways local jurisdictions can practically implement trauma-informed practices to promote student and staff wellbeing. Presenters will provide examples of school districts that are promoting school success by the use and development of trauma-responsive school-based intervention models.
