Supporting Emotional Regulation in Middle and High School Students

Workshop Details

Date(s): December 3, 2019
Time: 4:30-6:30PM
Place: Lane ESD Main Campus (directions)
Presenter: Emily Pyle, Trauma Healing Project
Audience: Middle/high school teachers and counselors
Capacity: 40 participants
Fees: None
Goals:
  • Learn to use brain-based, trauma-sensitive communication skills to de-escalate students in crisis
  • Learn to build rapport with students who may be reactive, withdrawn, or otherwise difficult to reach
  • Develop longer-term strategies for supporting students impacted by trauma and toxic stress to realize their full potential
Description: Students who have experienced traumatic events or toxic levels of stress in their lives often come to school too overwhelmed or shut-down to fully engage in learning. Teachers, school counselors, and other educational staff have the potential to reach these youth in ways few other adults can. This workshop will draw on an understanding of how trauma impacts our brains and nervous systems to offer a framework for responding to students with strategies for both short-term crisis intervention and longer term resilience-building.
Lunch: No lunch will be provided.
Prerequisites: This workshop is most appropriate for participants with some previous training or study on trauma and trauma-informed care.
Notes: All participants will be provided a certificate for PDUs based on the training hours.
