What are the principles of building trauma-sensitive learning environments, and how can you apply them in your school? Get practical answers from trauma expert Jen Alexander in this two-day training session, held on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and Wednesday, March 18, 2020 in Terre Haute, Indiana. An experienced teacher trainer and author of the bestselling book Building Trauma-Sensitive Schools, Jen Alexander will introduce you to all the essentials of trauma-sensitive PreK–12 learning environments—and explicitly teach you how to use trauma-informed response to intervention to meet the needs of all students. Attend this engaging seminar with your team, and come away ready to help every student feel safe and ready to learn.

Participants will

  • Recognize the complex ways trauma can affect children

  • Receive guidance on building a trauma-sensitive learning environment within a multi-tier system of support (MTSS)

  • Learn about resilience factors and how to help students develop them

  • Understand why restorative discipline practices are more effective than traditional approaches

  • Develop and strengthen trauma-informed interventions in your school

  • Practice trauma-sensitive mindfulness
