Empower Students After Trauma

Support trauma survivors by teaching them simple coping strategies and by helping them transform their pain into purpose.

How does trauma affect students in and beyond school? In this workshop, we will learn about the psychological effects of trauma exposure. We’ll practice strategies teachers can use to help trauma survivors and those within their orbit, both by teaching them simple coping strategies and by helping them transform their pain into purpose.

Learner objectives for a 2-hour workshop:

  • Understand how trauma works

  • Practice simple coping strategies to use with students

  • Plan to support the community after a trauma

  • Use meaningful work as a form of support
