Why Trauma-Informed SEL Matters, and how Heart-Brain Science is Key to Student Success

February 2021 - In this summit, we show what Trauma-Informed SEL looks like using an example of a poorly-worded question. We learn how what we say, and how we say it, affects the brain and learning ability of a traumatized child.  In this video we discuss:

  • Three things kids with trauma wish their teachers knew.
  • Heart-Brain Science and how it helps align traumatized students.
  • How to implement CASEL’s belief of reaching students starting in the classroom, into the school, and then out into the community, where we can really make an impact and be of service to our kiddos and their families. Watch the Panorama Summit video.
