Childhood trauma negatively impacts at least 1 out of every 4 students in all schools across the nation. Whether children or teens have experienced neglect, child abuse, neighborhood violence, war, or any other adversity, trauma that occurred even years ago can be having a negative effect on functioning today. Educators want and need to learn how to help our masses of traumatized students because many times trauma is what is driving serious behavior concerns in our classrooms. By building trauma-sensitive schools, we will work together to provide a positive, relationships-first culture marked by both empathy and accountability. Ms. Jen teaches teams how to utilize trauma-sensitive discipline practices and to implement trauma-informed MTSS in order to improve attendance, decrease behavior problems, improve academic achievement, and build resiliency. She is an experienced Iowa educator, trauma expert, author, and presenter. Her book Building Trauma-Sensitive Schools: Your Guide to Creating Safe, Supportive Learning Environments for All Students is already helping educators across the country better help youth. In this training, Ms. Jen will help you by bringing together her experience as a former special education teacher and current school counselor but also as a foster/adoptive mom. Jen has worked with kids who bring the toughest of behavioral challenges, and while there are no quick fixes, she knows how to help.
