When you entered education, you thought it would be about lesson plans, curriculum, and seating charts.
You weren’t expecting kids who curse, hit, kick, and scratch other students, and bang their heads on the table when they’re frustrated. Kids who are constantly “in trouble” at school and have difficulty grasping the material being taught.
But sometimes the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, hunger, violence, and suicide lie behind these behaviours. And when you hear the stories of your students pain you’re left feeling blindsided, unprepared, and desperate for guidance on how you can help.
Whether you’re a teacher, administrator, counsellor, social worker or anyone who works with students, this program will provide you with the step-by-step direction, tools, and techniques you need to work more capably and comfortably with kids who’ve experienced trauma. The strategies and comprehensive learning supports shared at this event will enable you to create a better school climate, boost academic achievement, and improve school safety while building critical skills in students like self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and an openness to teamwork and cooperation.
