Trauma Informed Teaching: Help for Schools

The impact of childhood trauma and chronic stress is one of the most pressing issues facing educators and society at large. There is a direct correlation between childhood trauma, school behavior and student academic success.

Empowering Education offers training and a comprehensive curriculum for helping teachers help learners who have suffered from trauma.

Remember: Everyone in the classroom has a story that leads to misbehavior or defiance. Nine times out of ten, the story behind the misbehavior won’t make you angry. It will break your heart.

Teacher Training: Mindfulness & Trauma – The Neuropsychology of Trauma

  • This experiential workshop will explore the neuropsychological connection between mindfulness and trauma.
  • First, an understanding of mindfulness will be developed in the context of social and emotional learning.
  • We will review the research supporting the use of mindfulness as a self-care strategy, define the ?what, why, and how? of mindfulness, and discuss the implications of mindfulness as it relates to psychological trauma, adverse childhood experiences, and nervous system states.
  • Participants will experience the benefits of mindfulness first-hand through various mindfulness practices and deep breathing techniques.
  • Educators will gain a unique understanding of trauma, and practical strategies for relating with students who have experienced trauma.

Empowering Education’s trainings were informative, engaging, and generated the buy-in we needed to hit the ground running. Our teachers have a whole new way of understanding and responding to challenging behaviors.

Trauma Informed Teaching Part 4 of 4: The Mindfulness Solution

Trauma Informed Teaching Part 4 of 4: The Mindfulness Solution

The simple practice of turning your attention to the present moment – your breath, the sounds you hear, the sensations you feel – can actually physically change the structure of your brain and counteract the effects of stress and trauma in less than 8 weeks. Studies are now revealing that mindfulness-based therapy is more effective than anti-depressants and cognitive behavioral therapy combined in treating PTSD. Even better, the results are permanent as long as participants continue to practice mindfulness in their daily lives
