3-Part Webinar Series
Learn the history and context of the science behind Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the biological/neurobiological effects of toxic stress. This is a basic overview of what and how ACEs affect children and adults. By understanding what is happening within our bodies, we can use and choose trauma informed strategies (to be covered in parts 2 and 3) to best serve our students and ourselves.
“Children have impeccable reasons for behaving exactly as they do.” Learn about how trauma manifests in external AND internalized behaviors, and learn some simple ways to implement a trauma informed approach within your classrooms and interactions with the children.
Trauma exists within systems because our systems are created and maintained by people. During this session, we will begin to explore approaches and ways to take our awareness of trauma to inform change at a systemic level. Through an appreciative inquiry approach, you will learn where you can invite systemic evolution.
