Building Trauma-Informed Schools
Building Trauma-Informed Schools | Session 1
An introduction to trauma and supports available for teachers and support staff.
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 includes a variety of panelists from UNLV and CCSD. Information about trauma exposure and the varied reactions children may experience is provided. Multi-tiered support systems, mental health, social-emotional learning, and resources available within CCSD are addressed. Since working with traumatized students can be challenging, the series concludes with educator wellness.
Viewers will gain understanding, learn strategies, and have access to resources. These videos 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.
