The Exchange Loop
This webinar is sponsored by Second Step, an initiative of Committee for Children.
Children who have endured stressful experiences in their young lives may be especially challenging to teach. They may be overly disruptive or withdrawn in the classroom. However, early in life children are especially resilient to stress and can recover from trauma and adversity through supportive relationships with consistent and caring adults.
So how can educators bridge the relationship gap with children facing early adversity?
In this presentation, Sara will share scientific research and practical strategies from her book Bridging the Relationship Gap, and from her experience working with an elementary school that has adopted trauma-sensitive learning practices. Sara will address approaches for working one-on-one with children to build resilience and self-regulation skills, and share promising organizational practices that shape school environments to promote student learning and success.
In this webinar participants will:
- Learn what science tells us about how stress and trauma affect the developing brain and contribute to young children’s challenging behaviors.
- Identify strategies they can use to build strong relationships and approach children’s challenging behaviors in a trauma-sensitive way.
- Gain insight into how infusing trauma-sensitive approaches can change school environments to promote student resilience and learning.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
