In this engag­ing, rel­e­vant, and prac­ti­cal ses­sion, learn from child­hood trauma expert Kristin Souers and for­mer prin­ci­pal Pete Hall (authors of the best-selling and award-winning Fos­ter­ing Resilient Learn­ers: Strate­gies for cre­at­ing a trauma-sensitive class­room – ASCD, 2016) about the impor­tance of imple­ment­ing trauma-invested prac­tices in the school set­ting. “Incor­po­rat­ing research, build­ing a com­mon vocab­u­lary, and explor­ing the impact of stress on brain devel­op­ment begins our explo­ration. And because we’re in a service-oriented pro­fes­sion and con­tin­u­ously look out­ward to help oth­ers, we’ll turn our lenses around to build self-awareness, inves­ti­gate the power of rela­tion­ships, exam­ine our belief sys­tems, and embrace the con­cept of grace as we col­lab­o­ra­tively build a cul­ture of safety for our stu­dents, fam­i­lies, staffs, and com­mu­ni­ties. If we’re going to be good to oth­ers, first and fore­most we’ve got to be good to our­selves. This ses­sion is rich with strate­gies and approaches to do just that…so we can fos­ter resilient learn­ers,” explained Pete Hall.

Day 1 Learn­ing Outcomes

  • Par­tic­i­pants will deepen their under­stand­ing of the preva­lence of child­hood trauma and the impact of trauma and toxic stress on learn­ing and development.

  • Par­tic­i­pants will embrace the need to build self-awareness and tend to their self-care in order to be primed and ready to effec­tively sup­port their stu­dents and children.
