Prior to the pandemic, more than two-thirds of children had experienced at least one traumatic event by the age of 16. Stress from the pandemic has increased this statistic and magnified concerns for our most vulnerable children. Creating trauma-sensitive classrooms has never been more important than it is right now, but teachers are facing unprecedented challenges.

In this three-part webinar series, we’ll explore ways that trauma-informed educators can mitigate the impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on young children. Throughout the series we’ll discuss the power of relationships, the importance of self-care for educators, and an exciting new tool to help educators understand, manage, and predict dysregulated child behaviors that stem from exposure to toxic stress and ACEs.

The Power of Relationships

Wednesday, February 16 | 2pm ET

In classrooms across the country, teachers face a host of new challenges stemming from the stressful and even traumatic circumstances experienced by so many children and their families throughout the pandemic. Teachers play a critical role in children’s ability to heal from traumatic experiences—but often have limited guidance on what to look for or how to help. This webinar will support teachers in building trauma-sensitive classrooms.

The Critical Importance of Self-Care for Teachers

Wednesday, March 2 | 2pm ET

As educators, the commitment we make to caring for and prioritizing the needs of our children very often comes at our own expense. As teachers navigate new and continued challenges amidst the pandemic, it’s more important than ever that they intentionally focus on mental wellness and self-care—reducing the likelihood of burnout and fatigue and ensuring that they’re in the right space of mind to support their children’s needs. This webinar will offer practical knowledge and easily implementable strategies for teachers to help them focus on their own self-care.
