Virtual: Exploring Trauma-Informed SEL Practices (Aug 17, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM)

STARS Credits: 2

How can we support the social and emotional wellness of the youth we work with in these unprecedented times, whether we’re still running programs or only able to interact virtually? This interactive online training will explore this critical question as we discuss translating core principles of trauma-informed care of emotion regulation, connection, and safety into practices to creatively support all youth in these highly unusual circumstances.       

Registrants will receive an email invitation and reminder to access the online learning community meeting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the impact of stress on life and learning
  • Learn three core concepts of trauma-informed social and emotional learning – Connection, Self-Regulation, and a Positive Sense of Self
  • Learn and brainstorm specific activities for how to implement each of these concepts: at home, virtually, or in live programming

Virtual Training Details:

  • Zoom links and additional resources will be sent to all registered participants before each training.
  • Please note these will be interactive sessions, not informational webinars, so please come prepared to share and learn together!
  • A strong WiFi/internet connection will be necessary for the meetings, which will have video, audio, and web-based learning components.
*Accessing the training over computer with web camera is highly recommended.
