Course description

Frequently, children & youth with a history of complex trauma - particularly those that present with significant social, emotional, and behavioral needs - are served across multiple settings. Rarely, however, are the plans to support these children/youth collaboratively developed and implemented, much less informed by all relevant stakeholders. Informed by the science of the impact of trauma on development, learning, and school mental health practices, the Trauma-Responsive Support Planning (TRSP) process is primarily designed to improve outcomes for children/youth with an Individual Education Plan and receive mental/behavioral health services across school and community settings (eg. a community mental health center). The TRSP process a) leverages the principles of person-centered planning, self-determination, and emphasizes the voice of all relevant stakeholders, b) wholistically attends to the biological, psychological, and social domains of wellbeing, and c) results in a tailored, relationally-enriched support plan that promotes healing, building resilience, and the development of regulation skills that foster children’s abilities to learn socially and academically.

TARGET AUDIENCE: This training is for school and community mental health professionals (i.e. school psychologists, school social workers, counselors, behavior specialists, clinicians, etc.) responsible for the development of plans to support children/youth with a history of trauma. Joint participation of professionals from district and corresponding community organizations is strongly encouraged. 

LODGING: Participants traveling more than 60 miles may request complimentary hotel accommodations the evenings of the 25th and 26th.

INCENTIVES: Participants who 1) complete training and implementation activities with at least one child/youth, 2) participate in each of the five (45-minute) coaching calls, and 3) submit non-identifiable child/youth progress monitoring data at the end of February 2024 are eligible to create an Amazon Wishlist up to $250 to be filled and sent to your district/community location.
