Michael McKnight ·
Co-regulation with Kids "At-Risk"-Calming Together Highlights and thoughts from an article by Howard I. Bath:Calming together: The pathway to self-control Neuroscience shows that humans develop their abilities for emotional self-regulation through connections with reliable caregivers who soothe and model in a process called “co-regulation.” Since many troubled young people have not experienced a reliable, comforting presence, they have difficulty regulating their emotions and impulses.

Re: Graduations, non-linear paths, & the importance of getting started

Walter Endicott ·
Dreaming is a good thing, if it is followed up with setting goals to reach those dreams. That is called hope - "Ideas and Energy for the Future". It can be taught and learned, but through our cultural beliefs and values, not a through programs or mandates. Too many adults working with kids give up on them. We can not tolerate that from any of our workmates. We can create this culture if we choose to. Collective efficacy is a powerful tool.

Graduations, non-linear paths, & the importance of getting started

Lori Chelius ·
With graduation season upon us, I have been thinking a lot about one of my favorite graduation speeches. It’s the speech that Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey’s Anatomy, gave in 2014 at Dartmouth College. She references the typical expected advice from a graduation speech: “Follow your dreams. Listen to your spirit. Change the world. Make your mark. Find your inner voice and make it sing. Embrace failure. Dream. Dream and dream big." And then she says, "I think that's crap."

Looking for Information about Trauma Informed Approaches to ALICE Training

Karen Crawford Simms ·
Greetings, My community is just starting Active Shooting drills using the ALICE model. A number of the teachers, parents and students have expressed concerns that these drills (because they are designed to simulate a real active threat) could be traumatizing and/or re-traumatizing for those in the schools. I'm wondering if anyone has any information (sample policies, procedures or practices) that can make an active shooting drill more trauma informed.

Re: Looking for Information about Trauma Informed Approaches to ALICE Training

Suzanne Reinhardt ·
It's unfortunate that this is even an issue. I'm not that familiar with working with children but would it be possible to adapt the same trauma-informed practices for teaching to active shooter drills? You might be the first to consider addressing trauma in this scenario. Here's to hoping you connect with someone who can give you some feedback. Best of luck.

Thanks for the feedback. I was actually hoping to find a school district who had discussed this or had outlined a process to share with our school board and superintendent Keeping my fingers crossed.
