The Trauma Informed Classroom

The Trauma Informed Classroom

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Join MSW candidates/U.S. Army Veterans Ron Devoll and Tim Tolliver for a discussion about what the term "trauma informed" means and how you can use it to benefit your students. Students may come to school with trauma in their background, whether it is from family situations, natural disasters, crime, military service, etc. These experiences can be triggered depending on content or conversations in the classroom. This session discusses how to work with students from a trauma background and seeks to change the paradigm from "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"
