Join us WVPEC and Gerard Lawson, Ph.D. for a Professional Development:
TRAUAMA & SCHOOLING: A PATHWAY TO SUCCESS FOR IMPACTED STUDENTS
The prevalence of trauma among school aged children is cause for concern, and our ability to support those students as they progress through school requires attention and strategy. Recognition of how trauma impacts students across domains (e.g., cognitively, emotionally, socially, academically, etc.) underpins that approach to addressing trauma to support student success. This workshop will present data our current understanding of trauma and the prevalence among students in grades K-12. We will discuss how traumatic experiences literally change how the brain perceives challenges, even those that are a normal part of the educational enterprise. In addition, we will discuss how best to manage the inevitable occurrences in school systems which serve as actual triggers for students who have a trauma history and those who do not. Finally, we will discuss how schools can become more trauma informed, to minimize the negative consequences on students who have experienced trauma, and situate them on a pathway to academic, social, emotional, and career success.
