About this Session

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 by exploring:

  • the basics of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and their impact on educators and on classroom communities,
  • the impact of stress-related challenges that the past year has had on so many children and families,
  • how to recognize and begin to address challenging or dysregulated classroom behaviors that stem from exposure to trauma and ACEs, and
  • strategies for building relationships with children that act as a buffer against the negative impacts of trauma.
