SEL Hub Workshop (Virtual) - Chaos to Calm: Adopting a Trauma-Informed Approach to Transform Your Classroom

September 30

9:00 am - 11:00 am


Trauma continues to impact the way our students engage and learn in schools. Join us for this brief overview session to help educators, leaders, and staff understand and mitigate the impact of trauma on self and others. Participants will also learn effective strategies to support students who have experienced trauma, and the importance of staff self-awareness so we can model and co-regulate with students. Participants will also be able to collaborate with presenters to draft initial action plans to address key issues.

Registration Deadline: 9/29 at 12 pm.

Part 1 Learning Objectives:

o Describe how childhood trauma negatively impacts brain development and explain how
this can affect students’ academic, social-emotional, and identity development.

responding to student behavior and academic problems.

Part 2 Learning Objectives:
o Identify concrete strategies to help students with trauma (and all students) with
emotion regulation.

problems, lagging skills, unmet needs, and level of dysregulation.

behaviors and their peers and prevent disruptive behavior.

promote stress health.

with all students and staff.
