WHEN TRAUMA COMES TO SCHOOL:   NEW!

Understanding and Teaching Vulnerable Students

9 CLOCK HOURS / 1 CREDIT
Saturday, April 18th, 2020


Increasingly students bring their dysregulated bodies and distracted minds to our classrooms. In many cases their anxious, aggressive, apathetic, distracted and/or defiant behaviors are evidence that they have been exposed to childhood trauma, toxic stress and/or adversity. It is frustrating for educators because we care deeply and want to teach. It is debilitating and discouraging for students because they struggle to behave and to learn. In order to teach these students well we must understand how these adverse exposures affect both their minds and their bodies. We have the opportunity to make an incredible impact in their lives but good intentions and saying we are trauma-sensitive is not enough. This is an epidemic and we must be well-informed and well-prepared. Specific strategies and preventative measures for our classrooms and student interactions will be thoroughly discussed so that we can help these vulnerable kids function better at school and learn. Come join us! Appropriate for all educators, administrators and support staff.

Times: Check-in 8:00-8:45, Class 9:00-6:00, Lunch (on your own) 11:30

Location: Community Room, Spokane Valley Mall, Spokane Valley, WA

When you take one of Lori's popular workshops, . . .

. . . you get to meet dozens of other educators as you learn the latest research and pratical methods on a variety of education topics. Ask around. You probably have colleagues who have taken one of her workshops in the past and loved it.

Lori brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, and works hard to make her workshops as informative, practical, and fun as she can.

"I always get as many continuing education credits as I can from Lori."

-- Colleen Combs (Counselor, Spokane Schools)
I want to thank you for the excellent class. It was precisely what I was looking for.
...
I can make a difference in a small way and help to pave the way for the continued success of the challenging students I face each year.


-- Linda, 3rd grade
I have taught for 25 years ...

I appreciate your candor, your openness and honesty. Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge with us.

You left me with so much to think about, a better perspective to face the new school year with, and feeling more empowered with new knowledge.


-- Jan, 1st grade
