Trauma Informed Interventions in Schools
Fran Kuehn, LICSW

This training will include exposure to the latest research findings regarding the impact of acute and developmental trauma on the developing brain and how this impacts the learning experience in school. Participants will then learn about and practice a variety of interventions that are designed to mitigate the impact of trauma and promote post-traumatic growth. Issues of social justice and the outsized impact of trauma in marginalized communities will be discussed as well as methods to advocate for services and support for school-children impacted by trauma.

Following this training the participants will understand:

  • The impact of traumatic life events on the developing brain
  • How trauma impacts learning in school settings
  • Interventions designed for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 level impact
  • How to utilize these interventions most effectively in their particular setting
