It is essential that educational personnel know the impact of adverse childhood experiences and trauma on school children. And it is urgent that educators are able to properly recognize symptoms and behaviors in school children, identify possible sources of childhood and adolescent trauma, and work with families and support staff to develop intervention plans to address trauma.

We’ll also explore effective trauma-informed practices and a road map on how to begin to create a trauma-informed school.
