Course DescriptionThis course is grounded in research, addressing the needs of trauma-affected students and their teachers. Fostering Resilient Learners will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. Reliable strategies help you to understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom. The course helps you build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels. Adopting a strengths-based approach leads to recalibrating how destructive student behaviors are viewed, while perceiving what students need to break negative cycles. Dealing with trauma-affected students is difficult, and the course helps to stave off frustration and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish.
