Trauma-Informed Compassionate Classrooms – Live Webcast
March 1 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-7
As an educator, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of ALL your students.
This can be challenging enough with typical learners, not to mention those who have experienced trauma or mental health challenges. These kids may present with outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviors which requires more of your time and attention.
Despite the amount of time you invest in behavior charts or incentives for good behavior, traditional behavioral approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective.
Join Dr. Sarah Kirk and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behavior, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this seminar with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviors and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion. While this positive approach is absolutely essential for students with trauma, it will also greatly benefit each and every student in your classroom. Return to your school with:
- Research-based practices to establish a trauma-informed classroom
- A plan to develop positive relationships and build trust with your hard-to-reach students
- Proven techniques for communicating more effectively and collaboratively with challenging students
- Cognitive skill-building strategies which incorporate the science of neuroplasticity and the strengths-based perspective of neurodiversity
