Traumatic experiences in students’ lives can overwhelm their capacity to cope and ultimately, their capacity to learn and thrive in school. Being a trauma informed educator can help support students who have experienced or are experiencing trauma and help them be successful, resilient learners. OEA’s four-part series –Trauma Aware, Trauma Sensitive, Trauma Responsive, and Trauma Informed – is a scaffolded journey to prepare educators for transforming their practice. We offer some parts in the series every semester.
This fall, we're offering Trauma Aware and Trauma Sensitive. We're also offering a trauma-informed book study (not part of the series) where participants will read The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, a seminal book in trauma informed care. Each of these virtual learning communities starts on October 18. Registration and details can be found on the events page.
