Designed for teams looking to expand their base knowledge of trauma informed practices for schools, this session is a training for educators, school mental health/counseling staff, PBIS, and others working with our most challenged students. We invite staff teams working with Tier 2 or 3 students, to bring specific concerns and problems for targeted focus with the Trauma lens.


  • Review how emotion regulation and learning are affected by traumatic stress
  • Explore four specific ways to build emotional resilience in staff and students
  • Examine the re-enactment cycles of specific challenges to identify triggers and points of intervention
  • Build a step-by-step plan to increase emotional resilience for specific challenges
