Over half of public school students in the United States have experienced some form of trauma, which is associated with adverse effects on academic performance, behavior, and social emotional learning (SEL). This course is designed to help educators utilize trauma-informed strategies to create an environment that is safe and supportive for students who may have experienced trauma. The course prepares and equips both general and special education teachers to implement commonly recognized strategies which support the brain's ability to heal from trauma, allowing students to actively engage in all classroom activities. Topics include the ACE Study, the brain's response to trauma, effects of trauma, neuroplasticity and healing from trauma, trauma-informed schools, and vicarious trauma.

NOTE: Required books must be acquired separately
