I am working on creating a list of possible PD ideas for my staff (elementary school in Winchester, VA). Our staff is very interested in learning how to appropriately support students who have experienced trauma or ACES (not what ACES are). They are asking for practical takeaways that they can implement in their classrooms. 

Who have you heard & loved?

HI Elizabeth,

I have done a couple trainings in Virginia focused on this - I can share contact information for the organizers or share the evaluation results of the talk. I typically share a google drive full of resources; and my edited book Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students is designed to provide simple strategies for many educators to implement or consider. Feel free to message me if you want to chat more.


I have been working and training with Trauma Informed Care out of Detroit for 5 years now and am currently connecting with Craig Beswick out of California (Learn4Life) on Creating Trauma Informed Care Nationwide. We are currently working with Jobs for America's Graduates on making their program Trauma Informed. I would be very interested in talking with you and seeing if I could help or connect you with Craig.
