Conference Description :
This program is designed to introduce the concepts and implementation of trauma-informed care as a method of improving school success among youth. Research and clinical evidence shows that trauma-informed approaches should include an understanding of trauma as well as an awareness of the impact and effects of trauma on learning and development. It involves thinking about trauma in different ways and altering approaches and strategies to provide opportunities for children to rebuild a sense of control, empowerment, and mastery in their environment to create successful learning.
The workshop is interactive and will incorporate participants experiences, questions, and concerns related to the implementation of trauma-informed approaches to care. Participants will leave the session with a deeper awareness of the prevalence and impact of trauma as well as practical strategies for how to continually move toward being more trauma-informed, including how to interact with students during a crisis.
Conference Objectives are :
• Develop an awareness of the prevalence and impact of trauma among children, including how trauma impacts the learning process
• Understand the core components of trauma-informed care
• Identify tools and strategies for implementation of trauma-informed care that maximizes the potential for youth learning and healing
• Obtain skills for successful interaction with students during a crisis
