Building a Trauma-Informed School

How to build upon foundational trauma-informed practices to create a trauma-informed school even if students are difficult to engage, unmotivated, or disruptive so that you can promote physical, social, and emotional safety for all students without sacrificing teacher and student well-being or academic achievement.

Participants will leave with concrete ways to integrate trauma-informed strategies  through a school-wide, multi-tiered approach. Strategies will address social and emotional learning, self-regulation, relationship building, and cognitive problem-solving. The practices introduced are meant to meet the needs of all students and to aid educational staff in creating an environment that embraces the values of trauma-informed care: safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment.
