From Hurt to Healing: Equipping Educators to Respond to Student Trauma


Did you know that in 2012, a full half of this nation’s total student population had experienced or were experiencing trauma, violence, or chronic stress? (Natl Survey of Children’s Health 2011-2012).  Try to imagine what those numbers are now!!

Do those numbers make you want to take action? Are you an educator, educational leader, or board member looking to create safe and supportive learning environments for each student? Do you want to better understand the impact of trauma on student behavior and academic performance? Good news - join us to learn how!!

Attend this session to gain practical skills for identifying and responding to student trauma, building positive relationships with students, and promoting student engagement and empowerment.  Our goal is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to create a trauma-informed school that benefits each student, regardless of their past experiences.

Additional benefits to attending this active session include providing educators with the knowledge and tools necessary to create a trauma-sensitive school culture that fosters resilience, academic success, and overall well-being for all students - because students need trauma-sensitive schools, not just trauma-informed teachers.  

As participants in this expert-led session, you will learn to:

  • Recognize the effects of trauma on the brain and behavior
  • Capitalize on the assets/strengths inherent in students and families
  • Understand culture as a way of being to stop the traumatizing of students in the school
  • Infuse a trauma-informed approach across the school

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session:  As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.

Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.

  • Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
  • Disable your video
  • Mute your audio
  • Do not communicate via the chat feature
  • Do not upload an identifiable profile photo

Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
