Almost half of the children in the United States – approximately 35 million – have experienced one or more types of trauma. Trauma is different from regular life stressors because it causes a sense of intense fear, terror and helplessness that’s beyond the normal range for typical experiences. Barely a week goes by without another news story about a tragic cry for help and the subsequent loss of innocent life.

Educators have the unique opportunity to help these traumatized children feel safe and connected in the classroom through Conscious Discipline. Maybe you seek a way to feel empowered and take action to remedy this growing concern, or maybe you’ve watched the 3-Session Trauma Webinar with Dr. Becky Bailey and are looking for more in-depth information. Whatever brought you here, register today to discover how to recognize and reach the children of trauma, changing their life trajectory for the better.

This 2-Day Workshop will take a deeper look into trauma in children and the impact it has on the quality of life as these children develop and grow into adulthood.

During this Workshop, you will learn to create a safe learning environment, plus:

  • Understand the impact of trauma on the brain and behavior
  • Learn how to reach relationship-resistant children to increase cooperation
  • Create a culture of compassion, embracing marginalized children
  • Implement seven interventions that help traumatized children learn in school
  • Help lay the groundwork for a lifetime of resilience for all children

Event content is geared toward elementary ages and younger. However, information can be customized by middle school teachers, especially those with experience implementing Conscious Discipline.
