Description:

PSESD presents a yearlong, hands-on focus on student resilience designed to support shifts in practice that follow trauma-informed frameworks and strategies for school personnel. Recognizing every student’s capacity to connect, learn and develop, this series is intended for educators prepared to engage in a yearlong effort to shift the focus from managing student behavior to investing in trauma informed strategies and practices. Themes throughout the series will include operating from a race equity lens, the ACSC Whole Child model, addressing secondary trauma as a professional work ethic, and incorporating brain research through the ACE study and the role of resilience.

The institute will begin with a prerequisite full day onsite training on August 15, setting the stage for acting on the paradigm of resilience in the face of adversity. Four modules will follow throughout the school year, with each module consisting of a half day onsite training, followed by online discussions and follow-up.  Full participation is recommended.
