Workshop Description

This session launches with startling statistics about the prevalence of trauma in our communities.

Understanding the sheer scope of trauma is not enough – thus, we will dive deeper into the implications of how trauma affects the brain, the body and how the effects of trauma manifest in educational settings. Together, we will imagine a road to recovery by examining various evidence-based practices for our learners with trauma.

What You'll Learn & Do!

  • In a collaborative setting, we will use a creative process to imagine and design three types of solutions: 

    1. Healing experiences for our learners with trauma

    2. Learning experiences for our educators to better understand, empathize and engage with our learners with trauma

    3. Opportunities for community building

  • Outline the implications of data from the
    ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Study.

  • How to be responsive to the physiological impact of trauma on our learners.
