Trauma Informed Care in School Settings: Removing Shame. Restoring Hope. Reducing Isolation.
Al Forthan Memorial Scholarship Training
With Jackie Trussell, LCSW
Our schools serve many students with histories of traumatic life experiences. As educators and mental health professionals it is imperative that we recognize the potential impacts of trauma on the development, learning, and response to treatment in our students. We understand that the purpose of Trauma Informed Care is to promote resiliency, health and wellness for those who have experienced trauma and to create a minimum standard of care in addressing the impact of trauma. This training will focus on strategies and interventions that facilitate an understanding in recognizing the signs and behaviors associated with trauma.
