There is ever-increasing awareness of both the prevalence of trauma in the school-aged population and the impact such experiences have on the developing brain.  The impact has a profound effect on children’s ability to regulate their emotions, manage their behavior, and learn the academic material.  This presentation will help nurses, counselors, and other school staff to:

  • Appreciate the prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and their impact on health and cognitive development

  • Recognize behavior and learning difficulties among students which can be indicative of trauma reactions

  • Understand the elements of trauma sensitive schools, and how to implement them in their district.

During the '22-'23 school year we must charge a $200 speaker’s fee.  Scholarships may be available.  Your support for state funding will help us return to offering presentations at no charge.​
