Reimagining Resilience 1: Using a Trauma Lens helps adults build positive relationships with children who have experienced trauma. We will explore the impact of adverse experiences and the effect they have on developing brains and student behavior. The course gives teachers, parents, and other adults working closely with kids the skills they need to make sure that every child knows that they matter.
The course covers the three R’s critical in building positive relationships with kids, showing how children need to feel safe (regulate) and connected (relate) to learn new behaviors (reason). Through this interactive series that features practical information, activities, and conversation, you will be ready to:
• Explain the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and the resulting student behaviors that challenge adults
• Adjust your behavior to set kids up for relationship success
• Support children by being a buffering adult who helps them deal with toxic stress and build resilience
• Invite conversations with colleagues about kids experiencing trauma towards building a whole school awareness and shared understanding
You will leave this series with deeper empathy for kids, stronger connections with other adults concerned about the success of all children, and concrete next steps to bring what you learn into your interactions with kids and adults.
