2018 Best Practices for Youth Conference

Lecture Workshop

Trauma-Sensitive Education

August 6th 3pm EDT, 12pm PDT

Workshop Description

64% of children and youth in the US have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lives. The absence of a formal mental health diagnosis does not mean that they move on from these experiences unscathed. Even one traumatic experience in childhood can have negative effects on brain development that persist well beyond childhood, and sometimes have negative ramifications for academic success. Anne-Marie Gauto, LCSW, and former school-based social worker presents information on complex trauma and trauma-sensitive education, and outlines best practices for those who want to help students with trauma histories achieve their educational goals.
