TBRI® & Trauma-Informed Classrooms

Trauma-Informed Classrooms

TBRI® & Trauma-Informed Classrooms is a 1-day webinar training on August 5 & August 6 designed to equip educators to help children from ‘hard places’ of abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. Join us before the start of the school year to learn how to disarm fear, optimize learning, and facilitate healing for vulnerable children in the classroom. This 1-day webinar training will include an overview on the impact of trauma and sessions on the Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) Empowering, Connecting, and Correcting Principles as they relate to a school setting. Our goal for TBRI® & Trauma-Informed Classrooms is to equip educators to meet the needs of every child in his or her classroom. Lunch will be provided and 6.5 hours of training will be awarded.
