Trauma-Informed Learning:
Investigating Mental Health Issues and Helping Children Cope

As the healing begins from the impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent quarantine, the need for evidence-based Trauma-Informed and Culturally Competent practices are of paramount importance. States are looking for ways to support their schools, educators, students and communities in the most effective way.

Trauma-Informed Practices are the building blocks to the foundation of any resilient school community. Join us as we discuss the impact of trauma on students and how to build an environment that helps everyone succeed.

    • Developmental Trauma and how it impacts learning and behavior.
    • Trauma-Informed and Culturally Competent strategies that build
      resilience for all students.
    • Strategies for supporting our post-pandemic students.
    • A framework for building a resilient school community and the
      data that can support it.
    • Trauma-Informed Social and Emotional Learning and why it is so
      important.
    • Educating the heart and the mind through Social and Emotional
      Learning.

Attachment & Trauma Network staff are experts in trauma-informed care, and give real-world advice and suggestions to help educators help their students. This workshop shares the best techniques for handling mental health issues in students, while keeping your own sanity. Educators can experience their own PTSD in certain situations, so we’ll address personal care as well as student support.
We open this workshop to all school staff because all adults in school communities are establishing relationships with students.

 


Social and Emotional Learning:
Why SEL Is Important for School Safety and Classroom Management

This workshop is an overview to help with educator buy-in on why today’s schools needs SEL curriculum married into their existing daily workload. We’ll give tips on how it eases the day for staff, and show the science that proves emotional well-being improves student outcomes. We do a deep dive into a common question – Bullying VS Peer Conflict; how to recognize the difference and how best to respond. We make learning fun using engaging break-out sessions and scenarios to analyze as a group.

 


Today’s Youth:
How Social and Emotional Learning Can Conquer Modern-Day Issues

From juuling and e-cigarettes to sexting and cyberbullying, the i-Generation has introduced some challenging new issues for educators to face head on. We share smart tools and recommendations on how to handle the growing list of today’s unique concerns. Coronavirus has introduced new issues for counselors and educators to work on with students and their families, so we’ll propose smart SEL techniques to use during remote-learning this coming fall semester. We also help all staff understand and address the needs of non-binary students and give smart suggestions on how to make your school safe for its LGBTQ population. This workshop is interactive: We share experiences and discuss how different case scenarios should be handled.

 


PBIS & SEL: 
Changing the Culture and Climate of Our Schools and Communities

Adopting a new school-wide or district policy like PBIS and then adding SEL on top of it, can be a daunting task for any administrator or educator. This workshop will explain why SEL and PBIS belong together. Participants will be given the tools to implement PBIS and SEL strategies at school AND home, for an entire community culture shift.
