Re: Webinar- Trauma-Informed Instruction: The new foundation for a positive school climate

The webinar was hosted by BloomBoard, I know they will send out a link to all who registered. I would bet if you didn't register but emailed them at info@bloomboard.com they might add you to the distribution list.

Interesting we have been teaching two graduate level classes for teachers on trauma informed care for several years. As well as a ceu class for teacher recertification. We use our text Supporting and educating traumatized students, Oxford university press. we have also been offering this class to all of the teachers working in the juvenile justice in the state of Ohio. we would be more than glad to share syllabi or other resources if there is an interest

Re: Teaching Adult Wary Children and Youth

Jim Sporleder ·
Michael, a great article to advocate that we use a trauma informed lens to address our most chalenging students. We kick them out or remove them from school, because our system has a death grip on our traditional approach to school discipline which is based on fear. A change in our approach, will cause a change in our landscape. Very good article.

Re: Do Children have a Right to be Safe ?

Leslie Lieberman ·
Dear Dawn, Thank you for this thoughtful, comprehensive and amazing compilation of information about safety. You have done a masterful job of uncovering how our various systems define safety and make excellent suggestions. You are to be commended! I do agree with your point that it is critical to keep the child at the center of our understanding of safety - however, I also think it's important to acknowledge that environmental safety (such as creating safe buildings and developing safe...

Re: Trauma Informed Schools: Part 2, Creating Trauma Informed Classrooms

Jim Sporleder ·
If not us educators to be that caring adult in that child or teenager's life...then who will fill that role? A school that will implement these trauma informed practices creates safety and consistent predictable outcomes. Another excellent article and example for us to understand we must circle around the students... not work from silos that cause confusion.

Re: Why Teach about Grief and Loss?

Thank you for this post. Yes. We all need some guidance on dealing with grief and loss. Waiting until it happens is NOT the best approach! This reminds me of the facts about healthcare in the documentary "Resilience." The US spends $3 trillion on healthcare and just 5% of that goes to prevention. We spend 13 years of life in school to learn about some aspects of life most of us will never need. I would venture to say less than 5% of that time goest to practical teaching about the ups and...

Re: Why Teach about Grief and Loss?

Susan J Ciminelli ·
Thanks for posting. You are spot on about children needing to be better prepared to understand grief and loss. Actually adults need this too. I used to do the Children's Talk in my previous church. One Sunday, this was the topic and I had a small book to use for my object lesson. (I never had anything "normal" like a children's book, so this lesson was unusual for that reason.) The book "Water Bugs & Dragonflies" by Doris Stickney is an excellent way to start a conversation. Your...

Absolutely Heidi! In fact, we need regulated adults to avoid dis-regulating children (originally or further). In my parenting work and professional development for teachers (including preschool and chid care pro's) I help adults recognize how and when child behavior triggers their own disregulated and thus disregulating reactions, and how to transform their responses with mindfulness, a process I call The Method , and the 7 Mindsets .

Comment

Re: Federal Grants for Trauma-Informed Interventions in Schools

Cora Goss-Grubbs ·
Hi Martha, Grants will be made mainly to state educational agencies, so your best bet is to engage your state's mental health program. The Request for Grant Proposals (RFP) will need to be made in partnership with your state's educational agencies. The sooner you can start the process of engaging partnerships with other organizations and with your state's mental health agency, the better; the RFP's will be available in Spring and agencies won't have a lot of time to respond at that point.

In response I'd like to share this article about a program I work with: http://www.theatlantic.com/nat...-nonviolence/277893/ Not spoken in this article - is this dramatic change - a 90% reduction in violence and police calls - came from training only the adults in the building. We changed how the adults interact with the kids and got these results! We've since returned to train the students also. Roger Kluck

Thank you Daun for this insider's summary regarding the elephant in the room named TRAUMA. I have made the comment that really the public school is the largest social service agency we've got but nobody but me views it that way (I guess that sounds like a bleeding heart liberal). The remedies seem overwhelming, but your emphasis on an environment of safety instilled by training the adults make sense. As a mental health professional who has had some experience working in public schools, I...

Re: Failing Schools or Failing Paradigm ?

Steven Dahl ·
Greetings All - I am jumping in as I have what may be a somewhat unique perspective on the topic of funding (or fueling) the work we are generally engaged in from within various roles. As a central office admin for 10 years I knew that content literacy (ie, reading, math, science, etc) was important. From a resiliency and asset management perspective, I also knew that learners impacted by trauma/neglect/ACE's were at a distinct disadvantage with peers who did not contend with such adversity.

I was a teacher for the last 7 years and have had to leave permanently because I felt the stress created by the education system was causing real harm to the students, their families, and myself.

The scapegoat was the administration. I tried everything to stay in education - I adored working with the kids - but...

Dear Kary, Thank you for commenting on my post. I was very touched by your experience, and the clarity with which you see it.

Re: Peek Inside a Classroom: Jasmine

This is an excellent piece!!! Educators need to ask "What's happened to this child?" rather than "What's wrong with this child?" when confronted with inappropriate or acting out behaviors. Children come to school each day and give the best they have, even if that best includes ripping up paper and kicking and screaming. Teachers and administrators need to provide effective and appropriate opportunities for children with trauma to release their pent up frustration. They need to keep these...
