Kara, your question is a big one! Please consider joining the ACEs in Education community here on ACEs Connection for more thoughts and insights. Additionally, consider reaching out to ACEs champions and leaders on your region.  Preparing for such an important role of childhood trauma, related behavior and learning implications in a school setting is complex. 

Here is an example from Nashville training:

Please consider digging deeper into “a pair of ACEs” too.

Hope this is helpful! Karen 

Hello Kara, Is the seminar for the staff? If so many people have used my TEDx Talk to kick start the discussion. Do watch it first as I share my raw experience, but it really helps to re-engage people with their WHY. In Scotland, the ten minute talk has been used in training as part of the fantastic Resilience movie. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3xoZXSW5yc&t=4s

Hey Kara! I offer a summer intensive called "Teach Like Their Lives Depend On It" that includes trauma-informed practices and instruction as well as using social emotional learning as classroom management. For more information go to https://with-respect.com/extraordinary-educators/. Let me know if you have any questions!

Elaborating a bit - this is delivered through a model that first teaches through the model, then dissects the model, and then replicates the model across a 6-day session (offered either across 3 months or as a 6-day-in-one-week intensive). It encompasses the environment (how does one create a safe learning environment?), student-led instructional strategies, use of restorative practice to manage the classroom and teach self-management (agency), as well as the deep dive into how to structure everything done in a way that is engaging, empowering, and enlightening. It's been life and career changing for participants who have ranged from teachers and administrators.

Hi Karen...We are just getting ready to open registration for our national conference in June  (hopefully by the end of the week). I will be providing a block of my training to start the conference based on information found in my books, and then there will be a variety of breakout sessions to choose from to provide further inspiration, doable strategies, and understanding as we seek to reach children beyond at-risk.  There will also be a post-conference workshop to go a bit deeper into understanding one's self as a leader.  Feel free to visit my website: www.hope4thewounded.org.  Feel free to email me if you have questions or would like further information about my training.  Best in your new position...you have an amazing opportunity to position children for HOPE!

Good for you! Besides getting yourself ready for your new assignment, you might also want to look at Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience (https://www.dibbleinstitute.org/mind-matters/) because it can help you guide your young people towards healing.

It is meant to be taught by a paraprofessional in a classroom or other group setting with young people who have experienced early trauma. Its 12 lessons are engaging as well as comprehensive in scope, helping young people to learn how to manage their emotions, understand what happened to them, and build an healing infrastructure around themselves. Please let me know if you would like to review a complimentary online copy.

We do offer training but many people also teach it "out of the box."

Best wishes to you in this important work!

I will be moving into a position next school year to better support our students with trauma/high ACE scores. I have been asked to find a seminar/training for ACE. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Something in the summer would be ideal. 

Hi Kara!

I think whichever training you choose, it is very helpful to have solid neuroscience information as a foundation for it.. it helps show the effects of trauma and adversity on brain architecture and functioning in a concrete, tangible way, rather than as just a concept. 

My recommendations:

Conscious Discipline - trauma-informed institute 

Brain Story from the Alberta Family Wellness initiative (online)

and I also offer a neuroscience train-the-trainer each year - the Institute for Mindset, Resilience and Innovation (iMRI). Next cohort starts in June!  You can find it in my website: stefaniefayefrank.com/iMRI or at MindsetNeuroscience.com 

hope that helps!

My super is asking me to get trained first.  This will be a district wide position so I'm sure I will be bringing this back to my staff when our year starts.
