October 17

In this session, participants will review how trauma impacts the brain in greater depth, expanding on how students may present in the school environment in response to trauma or dysregulation. This will include dissociative (withdrawal) reactions, defiant (acting out) responses, and problems with executive functioning. We will also discuss concrete strategies support staff can use to de-escalate, ground, and regulate students while avoiding re-traumatization or disciplinary action. Goes into more detail on therapeutic strategies that can be used on an individual or group basis, addressing behavior, emotions, and negative beliefs/thoughts.

Prerequisite: Participants must have attended an initial trauma training. This may include Trauma 101; Trauma, The Brain and Learning; or Chaos to Calm.
