Who should enroll?
The online course has been designed as a professional development opportunity for K-12 educators.
This course covers the neuroscience of trauma and how trauma impacts students’ brains and bodies, interferes with teaching and learning, and shows up in undesirable behavior in the classroom. Educators will develop skills to better notice and understand their own reactivity and be responsive to the changing states in their bodies and mind. Become adept at reading mental states in others and how to co-regulate others with body language and relational strategies. Drawing on personal experiences and using experiential exercises and individual, partner, and small group reflection, educators will increase their ability to be present for and stay curious about students, understand and respond to student behavior and needs, and prevent educator burnout.
