Building Resilience in Students Impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences (2 or 4 Days):
Participants will deepen their understanding of the impact of ACEs and trauma on students’ learning and behavior. Research has shown that ACEs and trauma affect a child’s brain development, cognition, behavior, and social-emotional development. By building our knowledge of the impact of ACEs, we strengthen our “why,” or the reason that we engage in this work, while gaining insights that make us more effective school professionals. School-wide systems that engage the entire staff to create a universal culture of compassion and achievement can provide students with consistent support, structure, and nurturance.
- Expand your capacity to foster resilience and success for your students and yourself.
- Learn strategies for cultivating self-awareness, growth mindset, resiliency, and self-care
- Develop multi-tiered strategies to support the behavioral, social-emotional, and academic success of all students, especially those impacted by ACEs and trauma
- Develop action plans to implement a multi-tiered trauma-informed framework in schools
