Facilitating from a Trauma-Informed Lens
Virtual Instructor-led Training
Through the self-paced course, you focused on understanding techniques to create and sustain a trauma-informed learning environment. You know how to communicate, accept, and validate these emotions in others. Now, you’ll build on that foundation. Learn skills and apply techniques needed to create and sustain a trauma-informed learning environment, and to identify and work with young people who may be exhibiting behaviors based on previous trauma.
A conversation starter.
Deep, meaningful conversations – rooted in a wide perception allowing you to identify and respond with empathy to those potentially displaying the effects of previous trauma. You’ll have a chance to practice these new skills and techniques through the Advocates for Youth classroom simulation program (a simulated teaching experience). And yes, this one includes a couple hours of additional homework. It’ll be worth it, we promise.
Roll up your sleeves.
Delivered through four weekly, two-hour sessions held at pre-set times over a five-week period, this 12-hour virtual instructor-led course continues to build on the content you learned in the self-paced course, focusing on growing your skill.
