More Good Days:  Brain-Based Strategies for Trauma-Responsive Schools Part Two

Register in advance for this meeting:
In the United States, more than 60% of children under the age of 16 have reported experiencing at least one adverse childhood experience (ACE). As educators, we see the impact of trauma every day on students’ behavior, engagement, and academic readiness in our classrooms and on our sites. This informative, engaging, and experiential session explores the neuroscience around trauma and provides participants with simple yet powerful research-based strategies to build relationships and cultivate environments that empower all students to thrive. In the last year, many have experienced collective trauma in dealing with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been complicated by social isolation, uncertainty, and schools looking for new ways to reach and teach students.
Trauma has exacerbated three things that the brain hates: chronic unpredictability, social isolation, and physical and emotional restraint.  In this experiential learning session, facilitators will focus on how to meet our brain's need for predictability, belonging and connection, and voice and choice.  Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma on student learning and behavior, as well as research-based practices and strategies that they can begin to implement in their classroom immediately as part of a trauma-informed approach.
This session also includes a Hyperlinked Resource Doc FULL of resources you can use immediately and access to a Google Drive Resource folder too! :)
