CASCD is excited to offer several workshops this year focused on developing and implementing a trauma-sensitive environment. We will be offering the initial training with additional training to follow and is being scheduled in April. Location and detailed information to be added soon.
Childhood trauma is real, it is prevalent and it impacts students, their learning and the adults in their lives quite significantly. In this engaging, relevant and practical session, learn from childhood trauma expert Kristin Souers, MA LMHC, (author of "Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive classroom").
