June 19 – A Trauma-Sensitive Workshop at CUW

A Trauma-Sensitive Toolbox for Teachers:
Meeting the needs of all learners in Christian schools within a fallen and broken world

Monday, June 19, 2017
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Friends of Concordia Seminar Room
Concordia University Wisconsin’s Mequon Campus

In today’s world it is imperative that educators understand the impact of adverse and traumatic events on children’s physiology and brain functioning as well as how those manifest themselves in their actions and interactions with others, particularly in school. Such understanding will enable educators to become trauma responsive.

This full day seminar will provide background and resources related to trauma along with specific strategies on how to coach students to manage their brain and their actions within school and, ultimately, begin to learn how to cope and compensate more successfully within the classroom and life. This seminar has been designed for educators in Christian schools but is useful for a teacher in any setting.
