Trauma Informed Teaching

1374 members
Trama has a major impact on so many children's abilities to learn. Understanding trauma is the key!!

My wife has been told by her boss to come up with 28 hours of PD for her district's paraprofessionals-does anyone know of any free online courses that would be appropriate?

do you have any coping mechanisms you’d recommend for students at an alternative school? We have a lot of meltdowns and apathy and lack of motivation

I find it hard to keep it together at school. I was in an abusive relationship that finally lead me to emptiness and emotional trying times. I keep things bottled up about school and home.

I recently watched Wyatt Cenac’s series on HBO and heard about the great work happening in Oregon. For a teacher who is in a system with out a lot of money, where could I start?

I have a 3rd grade student who has been extremely disrespectful and defiant. I’m at my wits end... she says “no” or “why should I?” to everything she is asked to do and has a terrible attitude. Help!

Hi fellow teachers! Another great resource for trauma informed teaching is Dr. Nadine Burk- Harris’ documentary Resilience. She also has a shorter Ted talk summarizing her main points. She is amazing

Our staff just finished a book study on this book. It really helps you to understand the impact of trauma on the human brain. It also gives strategies to use in your class.
