Welcome to Trauma-Informed Practices Professional Development

Trauma-Informed Practices is designed to teach educators how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) impact students’ neurological, physical, and emotional development. Educators will learn how to respond to students’ trauma-based characteristics by identifying their mental state and corresponding brain function. The 10 essential elements of a trauma-informed school system are presented, with a focus on Individualized Education Programs and assessments. Trauma-informed interventions will be taught following three primary principles:

1) empowering students by meeting physical needs,

2) connecting in the classroom by creating relationships that matter, and

3) correcting behavior by rethinking classroom management.

Cost is $200 and includes 1 credit equivalent transcribed
