This workshop is for teachers in elementary grade levels who are looking to improve the stress levels of students (and themselves!) in the classroom. The focus of the workshop will be on Tier 1 strategies that will benefit all students, regardless of whether or not they have experienced trauma. These practices and strategies can all be implemented TODAY in your classroom! Educators will learn how to enhance the atmosphere of the classroom through simple and easy-to-implement routines, procedures, and ways of thinking about behavior.
Elementary teachers will decrease stress levels and improve mental health outcomes for both themselves and their students by implementing trauma-informed practices in their classroom during the next two months.
