Significant numbers of youth in the U.S. experience and are impacted by trauma. That trauma can have a profound impact on behavior at school, the ability to learn, and their relationships with peers, school staff and family members. It can create a disconnect from the schools and youth-serving agencies that undermine a youth’s ability to thrive. Trauma-sensitive schools and youth-serving agencies are those where all youth feel safe, accepted and supported, where there is a shared understanding among all staff and where student needs are addressed in holistic ways. This workshop will provide schools and agencies with an understanding of the commonality and impact of trauma on youth; the guidance to adopt a trauma-sensitive approach for schools and agencies; and resources and strategies to create safe and supportive systems for youth.
- Identify the impact of trauma on youth.
- Recognize specific strategies and resources to address the impact of trauma on youth.
- Utilize the components of trauma sensitive systems to begin creating trauma sensitive schools and agencies.
