Trauma Informed Care : Continuum of Services for Exemplary Practices
In the Trenches of Care
May it open your eyes to the empathy and skills needed to empower our students.
Trauma informed care is crucial to the success of the Alternative / non-Traditional & Unique Educational Facilities students.
This awareness and infrastructure of mindset is indeed the missing link in the Continuum of Services for Exemplary Practices.
This workshop will Teach, Inspire and Motivate all practitioners with empirical data and tools to implement Trauma informed care in the trenches.
The link can be made with the drop out crisis of America and the lack of Trauma informed care practices or lack thereof in our institutions.
Educate yourself and empower your school with the overview of Trauma Informed Care practices from the Teacher to the entire district.
The fate of our students is at stake
