As an educator, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the social and emotional needs of ALL your students.
This can be challenging enough with typical learners, not to mention those who have experienced trauma or mental health challenges. These kids may present with outwardly aggressive and irritable behaviors which requires more of your time and attention.
Despite the amount of time you invest in behavior charts or incentives for good behavior, traditional behavioral approaches to classroom management and a punitive approach to discipline simply are not effective.
Watch Dr. Sarah Kirk and learn how a trauma-informed approach will greatly reduce challenging behavior, improve student engagement and increase learning outcomes. Leave this training with new strategies, tools and resources to reduce students’ impulsiveness, aggressive behaviors and inattention and increase their focus, attention and compassion.
