Schools are facing increasing barriers to learning as students are impacted by mass psychological trauma as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with increased exposure to adverse childhood experiences during this time.

As educators support students during the COVID-19 pandemic, trauma-informed training is all the more valuable to equip school staff with the skills to recognize and respond to students with issues related to trauma and distress.

Join us for a webinar that will discuss:

  • New data from 8,000 educators that provides insights into knowledge and attitudes related to trauma-informed training
  • How districts can apply lessons learned from mass traumatic events like natural disasters to address student trauma in the classroom
  • Solutions for training educators in trauma-informed practices to effectively take action during remote learning or in person when schools are reopened
