Building Trauma-Informed Schools | Session 1
An introduction to trauma and supports available for teachers and support staff.
Building Trauma-Informed Schools | Session 2
Learn the five principles of trauma-informed care and tier 1 intervention strategies.
Welcome to this four-part video series about building trauma-informed schools. This video series is a multi-media initiative for educators and families to raise awareness of trauma-informed teaching and to promote the principles of post-traumatic growth and recovery at home and in the classroom. This program is a partnership between the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), and the Clark County School District (CCSD) and is funded by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA).
Each video in the series (as they become available) will include a variety of panelists from UNLV and CCSD. They will begin by providing information about trauma exposure and the varied reactions children may experience. They will address multi-tiered support systems, mental health, social-emotional learning, and supports available within CCSD. As working with traumatized students can be challenging, the series will conclude on educator wellness. Each video in the four-part series will be posted once finalized.
Viewers will gain understanding, learn strategies, and have access to resources. These videos will offer information to help educators support students with a history of traumatic experiences. Since trauma can impact a student's emotions, behavior, and learning ability, it is essential to address it. We hope that this series is helpful to educators who are working so diligently to support student mental health and learning.
