The health and well-being of our university community and members of our extended community are always first, so in keeping with federal and state health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19, the Institute for Trauma Sensitivity has postponed this event until October 9-11, 2020.
Please see our October schedule and updated registration links.
During this three-day event, you'll get an understanding of the impact of trauma on student learning that will inform your decision-making in schools and classrooms. You'll begin to more fully understand how students learn and behave, and learn strategies that address the needs of the whole child.
Explore how to develop safe, supportive, and trauma-sensitive environments that make it possible for all students to learn. Learn the importance of connections — providing equitable opportunities for success requires not just individual supports but a community-wide understanding. Presented by the Lesley Institute for Trauma Sensitivity (LIFTS) and the Center for Inclusive and Special Education.
Participants must take the Impact of Trauma on Learning courses in sequential order. You’ll take one of the four courses during the residency weekend, depending on which course(s) you’ve already taken. Register online using these links:
