Transforming Trauma: Providing Students with Safety & Support

from 35.00

Course Description: Schools are increasingly becoming spaces for students to find social, emotional, and mental health supports. As children and adolescents are exposed to and living through traumatic events, they walk into schools and classrooms with significant stress and anxiety. This stress and anxiety can hinder peer relationships, academic success, attendance, and overall future success. As educators, it is our role to create safe environments for all students, and we need to ensure that our students have the supports necessary to thrive in their learning environments. 

The purpose of this course is to provide an understanding for what trauma is and how it effects brain function, brain development, and overall student well-being. Participants will learn about the trauma effects of bullying, grief & loss, domestic violence, physical abuse, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault. Participants will also learn how natural disasters and acts of terrorism can be sources of trauma for our students, as well. Throughout the course, participants will be provided resources for creating safe spaces for students, and they will write an implementation plan for how their new learnings will be translated into their schools, classrooms, and communities.

This is a one credit course.
