The data is clear. More than 2 out of 3 students have had to deal with at least one Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) -- such as the death of a parent, living with addiction or suffering abuse. Research shows that students who have endured two or more ACEs are far more likely to experience academic and behavioral issues.
The real question is what can educators do to reach these students and help them succeed? In this 90-minute webinar, Kim Johancen – a licensed professional counselor specializing in clients who have experienced trauma – will help educators identify and understand students who are struggling with traumatic events that have occurred in their young lives. She will also provide practical tools to help teachers, counselors, social workers, student services personnel and administrators address the needs of these students more effectively based on presenting symptoms.
The ACEs-Informed Schools webinar will examine the three primary trauma response states and share numerous skills and strategies educators can use with students depending on their specific trauma responses. Kim will share specific case examples in order to explore specific approaches to use with students based on the five primary stages of trauma recovery and she will reveal potential roadblocks that can occur at each stage.
Learn how Kim helped Karin - a 12-year old girl who was struggling in school because of post-sexual-trauma depression. Follow the steps taken to help Karin manage her depression with skills Kim will share with attendees. Kim and Karin worked together to build her resilience through strategies webinar attendees can use in their classrooms.
