NEW: The Emotionally Regulated Classroom

(Available as 2 hr., half-day, and full-day training):

It’s been reported that one out of every four children attending school has been exposed to a traumatic event that can affect their learning and/or behavior. Educators need the right information, with the right tools, to be prepared at the right time.

When children have experienced chronic and pervasive trauma, their thinking skills are literally hijacked by their emotional brain, shutting down their ability to focus, initiate tasks, follow directions, organize work, and control impulses. Everything a child needs to be successful in school.

How do parents and educators work together to help hurt children and manage their classrooms?

Choose from several Trauma Training topics:

-Becoming a Trauma-Sensitive School

-Classroom Design, Discipline, and Communication

-Signs and Symptoms of Trauma

-What is Trauma and Toxic Stress?

-Adverse Childhood Experiences

-Foster care and children removed from care

-The Two Before Me strategy

-Opinion Walls strategy

-Morning Meetings strategy

-The Two-By-Ten strategy

-The Ouch/Oops strategy

-Speak form the “I’ strategy

-NeuroResiliency in the Classroom

-The Attachment/Arousal Cycle

-Managing Stigma

-Compassion Fatigues and Self-Care Techniques
