2018 CSSP Summer Institute: Empowering Teachers in Applying Trauma Sensitive Approaches

Event Date and Time

Thursday, June 14, 2018 -
8:00am to 4:00pm


Come explore what it means to adopt a Synergetic Approach to LearningTM Implementing the underlying tenets of Authenticity, Attunement, and Self-Regulation/Co-Regulation we can skillfully apply trauma sensitive approaches in our schools. With the aid of video clips, participants will develop an understanding of this approach in classrooms. Participants will have the opportunity to practice self-regulation as a tool to work through intense emotions as they are experienced, so that they are released and not carried on. Participants will develop skills in talking about self-regulation in an inclusive way and facilitating teachers' understanding of the universal benefits for all students, while also discussing the need for differentiation. Behaviors seen in the classroom will be understood from a nervous system perspective and participants will learn to translate these behaviors for others in this context.
