Trauma Informed Instruction

April 15 | Red Jacket Resort, North Conway, NH

The National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence found that over 60% of children surveyed experienced some form of trauma, crime, or abuse in the prior year, with some experiencing multiple traumas. That's more than half of students in our average classroom, and while many educators are aware of the negative implications trauma has on learners, current teaching preparation programs include very little training in what to do about it. Trauma informed practices benefits all students and can be a universal approach that's easier to implement than you think. This workshop will provide the latest research on how trauma affects the brain and learning/behaviors so we can shift our mindset in how we're perceiving challenges, how to create a safe and trauma sensitive classroom environment to prevent triggers, and how to implement trauma informed instruction so we can best respond when challenges may arise. This is a hands-on, collaborative, and activity based workshop so come ready to move, talk, and take home strategies you can implement tomorrow.
