Trauma Informed Practices

Childhood Trauma – Consequences for the Brain

Participants will be introduced to the concept of developing a trauma-informed lens to view student behavior in the school setting. Participants will learn how traumatic experiences can impact a child’s brain development and health. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study will be explored, and participants will learn about the long-term health implications of childhood trauma. Participants will also explore case-study examples to identify ways in which traumatic experiences can affect student academic performance and behavior in the classroom.
