Course description

The prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences, and the extent to which they impact child/youth development and the adults who support them, has prompted the need for school communities to move beyond trauma “informed” to “trauma-responsive”. However, few professional development opportunities go beyond information about trauma and ideology. The Trauma-Responsive School Community: Facilitation Workshop provides training and ongoing coaching for facilitators interested in systemically implementing a trauma-responsive school community. Participants walk away with full access to engaging instructional tools and resources, listed below, as well as support to apply a structured process to develop goals and monitor implementation at all levels.

  • Content for independent learning in Moodle Learning Management System
  • Content for group facilitation in Slide Deck with Facilitation Guide
  • Hands-on activities, scenarios, examples, and assessments to support engagement and discussion
  • Individual application and facilitated discussion prompts for implementation and goal-setting


  • 8:30 Check-in
  • 9:00 Begin
  • 12:00-1:00 Lunch (on your own)
