Begin applying what you are learning about the core concepts of trauma informed education in your daily practice in the third part of OEA’s four-part learning series. In this 7-week course, educators will learn more advanced concepts of how the brain responds to trauma; behavior prevention and mental health support from a trauma-informed lens; and how to build plans to head off crises in the classroom. The course will focus on deepening participants’ knowledge of the core concepts of trauma and creating proactive plans to use regularly. This course is relevant for all members, including higher education members and ESPs. This course is ideal for members who have completed the Becoming a Trauma Aware Educator and/or the Becoming a Trauma Sensitive Educator courses offered through OEA. Because this is an advanced course, prior knowledge on the topic is required and registrations are subject to approval. To be successful in this course, participants should expect to spend three to four hours per week engaged in asynchronous forum discussions, readings, and assignments, and a weekly synchronous live session. Live sessions are recorded for those that cannot participate synchronously.

Level: Intermediate
Dates and times: April 10-May 26. Weekly live sessions (7) on Thursdays from 6-7 p.m. PST
Cost: Members $0, free as a benefit of membership; non-members $200. Optional two (2) undergraduate OR graduate credits for $100.
