Teachers know their students. We know when they are in crisis and dealing with trauma. Our dilemma is how to do/be our best when responding to our students as they struggle with that trauma while in our classroom?  When we understand more specifically how our students are impacted by the trauma, we can respond in proactive, helpful, and valuable ways. The goal of this workshop is to provide teachers an overview of what constitutes trauma as well as the different elements related to students who experience trauma. Topics include: basic neuroscience, and how the brain is impacted by trauma; the implications to students; and developing and incorporating some neuro- informed principles. We will then take those frameworks and provide practical strategies and tools to support students who experience trauma. This workshop includes discussions, experientials and practical applications. Please join us for this fast paced, enlightening workshop which will have you leaving confident to take action to create your trauma informed classroom!


The training will be facilitated by: Wally Scott, PhD, LPC, LMFT, Assistant Professor for Counselor Education at Radford University and Ann Mary Roberts, PhD, Professor in the School of Teacher and Educational Leadership at Radford University.
