Part 1: Trauma-Sensitive Schools – A Multi-tiered Approach to Trauma Informed Schools
When: Thursday, October 26 - 12:00 PM
Duration: 1 hours
Creating trauma-sensitive schools requires a comprehensive approach that is anchored in principles of trauma-informed care. In Part 1 of the series, we will introduce a working model for trauma-sensitive schools that includes three tiers of intervention: universal, selected and intensive. We will review the need for trauma-sensitive schools with an emphasis on the research on ACEs and the effects of trauma on child development. We will provide a framework that integrates a TIC approach with evidence-based practices and interventions that are consistent with an overall model of trauma-informed school-based services. The framework has been developed and promoted by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).
