We know that all schools have enrolled students who have experienced trauma since approximately 60 percent of adults in the U.S. report having experienced abuse or other difficult family situations in childhood.

How does trauma affect child development and impact academics and behavior? How can we align our systems to capitalize on practices that mitigate the impact of trauma? During part one, come learn some of the foundational information about trauma. (This session continues in 3E).
