Spend two days with Julie Petersen learning how to become a "witness” to a child's traumatic experience, as well as how 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 The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children’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 subcategories 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.

* DAY 1 will concentrate on how the brain reacts to trauma and ways to use a variety of sensory techniques to help children of grief and trauma. Time will be spent caring for the caregiver as well.

* DAY 2 will be spent exploring a variety of techniques designed to move students from being victims of their experience to becoming
survivors.  Activities include resources dealing with anxiety, group and individual process using TLC process, Mindfulness for adults and children, Resiliency activities as well as time to develop an implementation plan for your caseload.

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