This workshop is for: High Mount School District Staff Only!
Participants in this workshop will learn about the impact of developmental trauma on students, its relationship to mental health and how that manifests itself in the classroom setting. The necessity of using a growth mindset and 'trauma lens' when planning for and working with these children will be emphasized. The presenters will make the case for a perspective shift from asking the student 'what is wrong with you?' to 'what happened to you?' or 'what do you need?' as an essential, component to successfully address the students needs. Trauma sensitive principles and practices that assist the teacher and the students manage their anxiety, disassociation, need for control and hyper-vigilance will be shared.
