Through an ongoing pandemic and civil and political unrest, millions of American children and their teachers are returning to K-12 classrooms traumatized. Trauma-informed classrooms have never been more pertinent or more important!
Understanding Trauma: A Course for Educators is the first in a 3-part series that provides information on trauma in a way that is applicable for k-12 teachers. The course will give you the foundational knowledge to:
- Understand how trauma effects our students
- Identify the students that may be particularly at-risk for trauma to help teachers advocate for them

This course is intended for k-12 teachers of any discipline.
