Addressing Vicarious Trauma for Staff and Students

Week-long Schedule

About this training
Vicarious trauma affects teachers’ brains in much the same way that it affects their students.  Many teachers are never explicitly taught how to help students who have experienced trauma, let alone address the toll it takes on their own health and personal lives. Learn  strategies for supporting self and staff in ways that decrease burnout, improve camaraderie, and increase job satisfaction.  School administrators will learn what they can do to create school environments that better support teachers exposed to vicarious trauma.

Who should attend?
This training is relevant for anyone who works with large numbers of at-risk or low-income students, and is an excellent follow-up to Creating a Trauma Informed School (Thursday).    It is relevant for educators, either at the classroom or administrative level, school counselors, and staff in alternative schools.  Service providers from public, private or non-profit organizations will benefit equally.  If you have attended one of NCSE’s past trainings on the effects of trauma, you may want to join us Friday.

Cost: $190.  A 15% deduction for a group of four attendees OR for registering for at least three trainings.   A continental breakfast and lunch is included.  If you have a large team, contact us to discuss a training at your location.  If you have a large team, contact us to discuss a training at your location.
