Trauma-Informed Schools

Trauma Informed Schools online course

Click to see the first video segment of this online course.

This online course will engage participants and motivate them to take action on behalf of children. The documentary Paper Tigers depicts the dramatic transformation in troubled teens when the staff at their school incorporates findings from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study into their education and support services. 

A portion of the training day will include presentation of the documentary integrated with a guided discussion. The focus will be on the school as the change agent, an interconnected team, including mental health and child care practitioners, that supports healthy development of children, ultimately creating a thriving school. Participants will also learn how to find ACE-related programming in their communities and integrate it into practice while learning and practicing strategies and activities that support nurturing, positive relationships and appropriate learning experiences in a trauma-informed school setting.
