Course Description:
Supportive engagement in schools can help students who have faced trauma meet their individual needs, form positive attachments with school personnel, and ultimately flourish as learners. This course will look at the fundamental needs of people of all ages, how trauma impacts an individual's ability to feel that their needs are being met, and how trauma-triggered behavior can disrupt relationships. Participants will then learn how student-teacher meta-communication strategies are central to trauma-informed social-emotional and how using these strategies can restore resiliency in all learners and staff.
