Trauma is not an event that happens to us, it is how our body reacts and our brain changes in response to what has happened to us. Creating trauma-informed and trauma-responsive classrooms involve an understanding of the basic human need to feel safe, seen and connected within oneself and the world around us. Trauma-responsive classrooms engage in evidence-based practices that support the neurological, emotional and social well-being of every person. In this workshop, your educators learn how to adapt policies, procedures and practices that help to shift each nervous system in the room.
This workshop helps educators understand the impact of trauma for an individual and a collective group within a classroom. Participants leave with proactive and preventative activities to address behavior, attention, connection and healing.
