Join us as we welcome Kristin Souers, co-author of Fostering Resilient Learners.

*Secondary Focus: 6-12

Childhood trauma is real, and it is more prevalent than we might believe.
Add to that the aftermath of a lingering pandemic, political turmoil,
strained race relations, violence in our schools and communities, and a
host of other factors. Education is an extremely challenging field right
now! In this engaging, full day of training, learn from childhood trauma
expert Kristin Souers (lead author of the best-selling and award-winning
Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive
classroom – ASCD, 2016 and Relationship, Responsibility and Regulation:
Trauma-invested practices for fostering resilient learners – ASCD, 2019)
about the importance of acknowledging our reality, building empathy for
ourselves and others, understanding our mindsets, and embrace the
concept of grace. In this training, staff will be invited to reflect on their
current practices as well as the practices within their settings and will
have opportunities to engage and connect with one another about those
reflections. We will explore the latest research about how education has
been impacted. We will share ideas for how to manage our expectations
as well as provide input on how we can support each other and our
elementary aged youth in these current times. We will examine the role
that intervention plays and identify proactive ways to support regulation
as well as review the importance of repair when things don’t always go
the way we hope. This session is rich with strategies and approaches,
specific to the elementary population of students, to do just that…so we
can foster resilient learners!
