Working in a variety of school settings, it’s important to have an understanding of how to support students who have dealt with trauma. Trauma is the #1 risk factor for young people to develop a mental illness. This workshop will (1) define trauma as a normal reaction to an abnormal situation, (2) teach educators ways to support students struggling to cope with past trauma, and (3) leave educators with an understanding on how to connect students with appropriate self-help, peer-to-peer, and professional resources.
