Spend the day with Julie Petersen learning how to become a "witness” to a child's traumatic experience to best appreciate the intensity of the experience and the needs of the child. Experience the child’s perspective and learn how to support  success in school. Julie will demonstrate how TLC's evidence-based, structured sensory intervention process brings children and adolescents relief from the terror of their traumatic experiences. This structured process is used in schools and agencies across the country and has been proven, via research, to reduce trauma-specific reactions across all three major sub-categories of PTSD, while increasing school performance and decreasing school absences and office discipline referrals. These strategies could be considered Tier 2 and/or Tier 3 interventions for students dealing with trauma and loss.

About the Trainer:  Julie Petersen is a TLC Certified Trainer, TLC Level 2 Trauma Consultant and a School Counselor at the Chippewa Falls Middle School. She has attended workshops at the TLC Institute for the past four summers and is currently working on her Level 3 Trauma Supervisor, as well as Trauma Assessment Consultant certification. Through the use of Sensory Integrated Techniques for Children and Adolescents, students on her caseload have increased school performance, and decreased PTSD symptoms, school absences and office discipline referrals. Julie will share the concepts behind this technique and interventions that can be used in classrooms, groups and individually with children of trauma. This training will allow participants hands-on experiences to bring back to deal with children of trauma in your school.

Audience: Designed for School Counselors, School Nurses, Principals, Teachers and any other school staff dealing with Children of Trauma.

Many resources on creating trauma-sensitive schools are available:

     "Using these SITCAP techniques has increased my effectiveness in dealing with both children and staff of trauma as well as given me insight into my own trauma experiences. You will gain valuable insight into the world of children and adolescents of trauma, as well as come away with techniques you can use tomorrow in your practice."

     “Great and beyond expectations!”

     “Exceptional trainer. Highly skilled with good knowledge of schools.”

     “One of the best workshops that I have ever been to. It will be helpful as a way of looking at many of the problems our students feel and tools were given to help them.”
