A 6-hour training with Tana Bridge, PhD, LMSW, CTC~S 

PRESENTATION: Trauma responsive practice implies a working knowledge of not only what signs and symptoms exist with trauma but also, how trauma impacts brain function and the individual’s well-being. Participants will expand their understanding of complex trauma (ACES) and its impacts on coping and learning. Principles of trauma informed practice and opportunities for school-based intervention will be explored. As a result of this training, participants will:

  • Understand how the brain receives and remembers trauma.
  • Recognize the cumulative effect of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).
  • Understand the impact trauma(s) has on the child/youth’s regulating and coping.
  • Identify critical points of intervention; when behaviors escalate, and learning is halted.
  • Develop skills in coaching/supporting regulation.
  • Identify opportunities to foster a ‘safe’ classroom and teach skills in well-being and coping.
