Hi there! I am a doctoral candidate/researcher in Madison, WI. I am seeking input from fellow educators and researchers regarding gaps and needs in the most current research. I am leaning toward classrooms and teacher self-efficacy. I would so appreciate input to build and finalize authentic and valued questions.
Hi there. I'm a phd student in British Columbia, and I focus on trauma in teaching -- online in particular but with the general college population as well. I'd be happy to connect, if you're still interested.
I'm a school-based Trauma Educator in Northern California -- one of the conversations I keep saying hasn't happened yet is the connection between trauma-impacted kids and special education diagnosis. (A million years ago, before ACEs) my dissertation looked at outcomes for two categories of SPED: SED and EDBD - severely emotionally disturbed and emotionally disturbed behaviorally disordered -- now, with all the ACEs research we know that these are the kids -- mostly black and brown -- who are impacted by trauma, likely complex trauma. During my trainings I frequently get questions regarding different SPED diagnoses because trauma symptoms can mimic behaviors identifiable as ADHD, for example.
So - my input on where there are gaps would be to address this open question of ACEs and SPED :-) Happy to talk more offline if you'd like...
Hi Jennifer. I hope Lisa is still looking for input. There are so few areas within trauma that have been adequately addressed. I'd be interested in hearing from others for my own personal understanding of ACES/trauma research.
Hello Jennifer, Suzanne and Lisa,
I would love to join in this information exchange. I am a doctoral student and counselor. I have interest in the research gap you mentioned. I too have spent many car rides driving and pondering the intersection of ACES and SPED. I was even looking into TI modified resources which will support their FBAs, IEPs and other documents that travel with them from school to school. I would love to hear your ideas.
I am just starting my doctoral journey in the Missouri and as an administrator I am looking at teachers perceptions of preparedness when working with students who have experienced trauma. What I would really like to know is if a teachers own personal ACES score affects their perceptions of preparedness when working with these students.
