New Online Seminar on Student Trauma for School-Related Professionals

ELT is excited to roll out the latest online seminar for school-related professional members that offers timely and useful strategies while allowing flexibility to learn at one's own pace.

Understanding Trauma and Supporting Traumatized Students

Increasingly our students experience exposure to multiple or prolonged traumatic events, such as child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence. This experience directly affects their social and emotional development and negatively impacts their behavior and academic growth in school. It is becoming more common that school staff is faced with the challenges of connecting with, and educating, students who have endured complex trauma. Often, the hurt that is felt by the student is transferred to the school personnel and it can manifest in a variety of ways. This seminar will engage participants in understanding the roots of trauma, its prevalence and causes, the characteristics and associated behaviors, as well as learning how to work with traumatized students in a proactive and positive way.

Other online seminars for SRPs include:

Bully, Bullied or Bystander
Dealing with Difficult Behaviors
Disability Awareness
Our World, Our Students
Poverty and Its Effect on Learning
Recognizing and Managing Conflict
Supporting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
