Participants in this workshop will learn about the impact of developmental trauma on the brain, it’s relationship to mental health, and how it manifests itself in the classroom setting. The presenters will make a case for a perspective shift from asking “what is wrong with you?” to “what happened to you?” as an essential component to successfully address the students’ needs. Trauma sensitive classroom strategies will be shared with participants that can be taken back to the classroom to implement immediately.
