Trauma Informed Practices: Trauma and Creating a Community (Session 2 of 2)
Target Audience: All Educators Please register for each session individually. This learning track will be held on 5/8 and 5/29 Supporting challenging students is one of the most difficult responsibilities educators have. Much of what we do in society and in our schools is counterproductive to actually helping challenging students. In these sessions we will explore ways of viewing and supporting challenging students through a different lens. We will also explore new ways of thinking about students' behavior that will empower us to work more effecively with all of our students, even in their worst moments.
