Childhood trauma is real, and it is more prevalent than we might believe. In this engaging, relevant, and practical session, learn from former principal Pete Hall (author of the best-selling and award-winning Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive classroom – ASCD, 2016) about the importance of implementing trauma-invested practices in the school setting. Incorporating research, building a common vocabulary, and exploring the impact of stress on the brain development begins our exploration. And because we’re in a service-oriented profession and continuously look outward to help others, we’ll turn our lenses around to build self-awareness, investigate the power of relationship, examine our belief systems, and embrace the concept of grace as we collaboratively build a Culture of Safety for our students, families, staffs, and communities. If we’re going to be good to others, first and foremost we’ve got to be good to ourselves. This session is rich with strategies and approaches to do just that…so we can foster resilient learners.
