Session #1: Creating Trauma-Sensitive Schools: Using Relationships to Promote Growth & Learning

Schools across the country are adopting a �trauma-sensitive� approach in order to effectively educate students who have been exposed to adverse experiences. Neurodevelopmental impacts resulting from childhood adversity hinder a student�s ability to engage in the academic setting and manifest as disruptive, and often unsafe, behavior in the classroom. Creating �trauma competent� schools has become an imperative for educators who work to ensure safety and promote learning for ALL students. The field of �social neuroscience� draws from vast disciplines to explain how we have evolved in the context of interpersonal relationships through attachment and group cohesion, and how we have subsequently developed the capacity to shape the brains of those with whom interact and connect. This presentation will describe how educators can use our knowledge of interpersonal neurobiology to create classrooms and student relationships that maximize growth and learning. Participants will understand their role in creating trauma-competent systems and be able to employ trauma-sensitive principles, practices, and procedures to address the impact of trauma on learners and increase their students� ability to succeed in the school environment.

Promoting Learning in the Midst of Crisis: The Primary Role of Educator Resilience and the Ethical Imperative of Self-Care

Educators are faced with the seemingly insurmountable job of maintaining academic excellence, protecting the welfare of students, and, now, healing traumatized brain with ever dwindling resources and supports. In the past several decades, we have witnessed an explosion of research about the fundamental interconnectedness of human beings and we have a deep understanding of the critical role that teachers and school systems play in not only the cognitive, but also the social and emotional development of children. Given the high incidence, as well as the known contagion effects of traumatic exposure, educators run the risk of developing secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, and ultimately burnout if they are not equipped with the knowledge and tools of self-care. Participants will develop a sophisticated understanding of educator �self-care� and will explore the necessity of reflective practice for educators as the primary mechanism for caring for self. They will work collaboratively with other educators to create a plan for implementing self-care procedures in their own lives/schools.
