Trauma Informed Care in the Classroom

The past year has been unusual and difficult for almost everyone.  More than ever young people are struggling with the effects of trauma and it has an impact on them when they come to school.  That is why it is so important, now more than ever, to be able to recognize the signs when a trauma reaction is occurring.  It is also important to know some effective ways to respond when a student is having a trauma reaction and some strategies teachers can use to make their classrooms safe places for students.

This is two hour session led by Mary M. Kreitz, MA, LPC, CDCA, a Truama Therapist and Training Director with Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health. Visit for information about the types of services C&A offers and check out the C&A blog which addresses a number of different topics affecting young people and families. There you can information and suggestions that are useful to both parents and teachers. (Participants will earn 2 contact hours for this professional development opportunity.)
