Special Notice: This session is open only to educators participating in the Regional Education Consortium. School Division ID required at check in. Pre-registration required.
The experience of childhood trauma and chronic toxic stress can limit a person’s ability to be his/her best self. The impact can cause significant impairment in learning, emotional control, and behavior. If we come to understand how to support our students through these critical moments of their lives, we can achieve our goals of academic success and lifelong resilience. Further, environmental stressors can impact one’s ability to teach. The experience of secondary trauma as we are the vessels for the stories of our students, can impact our ability to be our best selves as teachers. We will look at the potentially traumatic experiences of both our students and ourselves as we learn about the intersections of trauma and resilience.
