SEL and Trauma-informed Practices: Creating a Supportive Environment for all Learners

As many as 70% of all children have experienced some type of trauma during their schooling years.* And this year, more than ever, we know our students are experiencing a lot of stressful changes. What does that mean for educators and how they approach the classroom?

Join us for 60 minutes as we explore the impact of trauma on students and how educators can apply trauma-informed practices in their classroom and the school at-large. Hear from real experts in schools on how they support students through trauma and build schools focused on success.
