Have you registered for the Trauma Responsive School Conference?

When educators hear the term “trauma-responsive schools,” they may first think of mental health and therapy. Creating a trauma-responsive school is not about educators doing therapy. Instead, it is about creating a culture that prioritizes safety, trust, choice, and collaboration.

A trauma-responsive school is a safe and respectful environment that enables students to build caring relationships with adults and peers, self-regulate their emotions and behaviors, and succeed academically, while supporting their physical health and well-being.

Prairie Lakes AEA welcomes you to attend a conference focused on creating a trauma-responsive school. The conference will be held Nov. 2 & 3 at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. Bring a team from your district!

Breakout sessions include:

  • ACES and the impact of trauma on youth
  • Restorative Justice - what is it and how does it work in education
  • Blue Zones
  • Therapy dogs
  • Collaborative and Proactive Solutions
  • Mindfulness, self-care, and more
