Re: Education Transformations - Providing Soc/Emot Training to Schools & More

Monica Lopez ·
Wonderful and exciting to hear that this is being implemented! Working with at risk and homeless youth, they lack the tools necessary to be socially accepted by their peers, to begin with. So, if the staff, teachers and students have the tools to be socially and cognitively conscious about how they treat others' our kids will have a better chance at succeeding in a system that sometimes turn them into outcasts.

Exactly Monica!! However it is not being implemented much yet. It is available though. Money and time issues seem to still prevail over its priority, unfortunately.

Re: Education Transformations - Providing Soc/Emot Training to Schools & More

And it's critical that education about ACEs science be included in any curriculum, so that teachers, administrators, etc., have a complete understanding of why kids and adults behave and react the way they do! We figure that there are several hundred schools that are learning about ACEs science and are integrating trauma-informed and resilience-building tools, such as SEL and restorative practice. It's definitely a drop in the bucket, but it's a trend that's growing rapidly.

Emily, I LOVE what you are offering! Do you only schedule training and workshops in Hancock NH? Would love to see this offered here in Maryland -- we have many public school systems who are working toward trauma-informed schools.

Thanks for sharing, Indiana is building momentum around Trauma-informed schools, and communities. I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing educators and community leaders who are committed to implementing trauma-informed practices into their daily routine.

Re: Trauma-Informed Practice Is a Powerful Tool. But It's Also Incomplete [edweek.org]

Walter Endicott ·
Simona and Debbie (and Raphael), Thank you so much for your courageous articulation about the missing component around trauma informed practices. Our work around creating and maintaining hopeful cultures has shown us the need to be careful that our well-founded intentions in understanding trauma doesn't result in the unintended consequences of defining our children by their trauma rather than by their hope. As you well know this is exactly what happened when we began to focus on "risk"...

We do similar work - and our experience is that it is easier to move away from punishments than to move away from rewards...and both cause some harm. What is your experience in helping folks move away from rewards?

Hi Rebecca, tell me if students have any codes of conduct and discipline policies to follow in the schools?.

Re: The Absence of Punishment in Our Schools

Jody McVittie ·
Sajjad, Our schools have expectations and classrooms have student generated guidelines (which look very similar to adult generated guidelines). The difference is that when someone doesn't follow the guidelines the response is: regulate, relate, reason and then repair the mistake. Of course, safety always comes first which can require removal from the situation (or sometimes even the school) - but the repair is what re-establishes connection and helps reconstruct the community. This is what...

Re: The Absence of Punishment in Our Schools

Sajjad Ahmed ·
Jody thanks for the prompt response to my question. We used rewards as for both tangible and intangible since last couple of years. Its particularly challenging for problem kids, but its an incentive to get them to do their work, get along better, and make the right choices. I personally feel that sometimes starting with something the student likes to do, rather than giving them something may be a better reward for them. We have to workout as how to help folks move away from rewards.

Re: The Absence of Punishment in Our Schools

Jody McVittie ·
Sajjad, The frame shift that I think needs to happen is the recognition that these students are not "making choices" when their behavior is inappropriate. As Mona Delahooke explains, it is bottom up behavior. We aren't teaching anything with rewards. When students are self regulated they can choose. When they aren't they cannot. It ends up being demoralizing for kids to tell them to make "good choices" and they do when they can - and when they can't and mess up and later get back into their...

Re: ACEs Validated My Teaching Experience

Andi Fetzner ·
Thank you for sharing your experience. I worked in Community Behavioral Health in Arizona as a therapist for a couple of years and remember the grief that I experienced within myself as I was unable to use the therapy skills I had learned, mostly CBT and other cognitive interventions, because the children and families were experiencing such high levels of stress and so many unmet needs. The ACEs Study opened my eyes and lit a fire under me to become an advocate for system change. How can we...

'Reimagining' schools must start with prevention [buffalonews.com]

By Melanie Blow, The Buffalo News, June 27, 2020 If New York State plans to, as Cuomo put it, “reimagine schools,” we should first reacquaint ourselves with their role outside of education. Many teachers perform a Sisyphean task of undoing the effects of the childhood trauma that two-thirds of children suffer at home. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention demonstrated that 10 childhood traumas change the way a young body and mind...
