Trauma Informed Resilient Schools Training

Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools Adults
This training teaches school professionals, and other adults who care for children, how to create trauma informed schools, classrooms and other settings.

Lastly, proactive strategies such as fostering connections, prioritizing social and emotional skills, establishing safety, and promoting play are presented. This course provides detailed information and concrete actions that answer not just the “why” but also the “how” to create the best life for traumatized children and all the adults who interact with them.
