The Trauma Informed Teacher: Learning How a Child's Trauma Can Impact the Classroom (Part1)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This is an introductory session to help teachers understand what trauma is and how it manifests itself in the classroom. We will go through the seven major risk factors and the five B's of trauma--how trauma affects the brain, biology, behaviour, body, and beliefs of a child. By looking through the lens of trauma, we will learn that change happens when thinking shifts from, "What is wrong with this child?" to, "What happened to this child?" and to see the need behind the behaviour. Lastly, we will address the role that fear plays in children from hard places.

Educators need a wide variety of tools. Children from hard places have unique histories and as such, require unique tools. With these insights you will be able to create a classroom where everyone is able to learn. While this session will focus on the ins and outs of trauma, you will take away many useable tools. The beauty of Trust Based Relational Intervention is that it works in any setting, with every age group and does not require a big budget to implement.
