Respectful Ways has partnered with the Attachment & Trauma Network (ATN)

Trained ATN staff members have vetted all our lesson plans and digital content to be trauma-informed! Research shows that almost 50% of American school children have had Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which can negatively affect a child's personal, social, and academic development. Respectful Ways tailors each school's SEL program to the specific needs of their student body, and now offers trauma-informed language and trauma-sensitive strategies, so all students feel safe and comfortable to learn. 

This exclusive partnership between ATN and RW means that schools and camps with children of trauma now have a SEL program they can turn to with confidence! Email or call 678.464.0962 to learn more about our trauma-informed materials.
