Other Professional Learning Opportunities:
Trauma Sensitive Schooling - August 1st DoubleTree, South Burlington
"Educators have an opportunity every day to heal children, changing the trajectory of their lives. But in order to do so, experts said, they and their schools must be informed about trauma and committed to creating trauma-sensitive environments." John Hopkins Urban Health Institute (2015). Trauma impacts school performance, can impair learning, and may cause physical and emotional distress, including physical violence. Educators can help a child who has been traumatized, but it requires a whole-school effort, beginning with education.
This one-day conference is for school employees wanting to learn some necessary skills when working with traumatized students, engage in important discussions, and begin to develop a school plan for creating a trauma sensitive school.
This conference is being sponsored by Vermont-NEA at no cost to participants. School groups are encouraged to attend. For more information, please call or email Ariel Bertenshaw at Vermont-NEA at email@example.com , 802-224-2401, or Juliette Longchamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
