Understanding Trauma-Informed Practices: A Primer for PreK-12 Teachers and School Staff

Join Cara-Leigh Battaglia and Share My Lesson to determine how childhood trauma, neglect and poverty can have a direct impact on a child’s ability to learn. It increases life risks through adulthood (from health to academic and career success).

Now Available On Demand. Original Air Date: March 25, 2020.

Educators and others providing intervention or emergency services need to understand the chemical and neurologically diverse impact this has on learning from preK through functioning adulthood. Understanding the risks, role, effects, and strategies help us to interact and respond effectively to a growing population of students impacted by trauma. Learn how to recognize and reduce obstacles and identify resources for success.


Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.

A very thought provoking and eye-opening topic, one that is most certainly relevant now more than ever. Thank you for sharing so much information. Perhaps there can be a Part @?

I enjoyed the content and perhaps if we had had more time this would have come up, but talking about trauma outside of an acknowledgement of the role of oppression - race, gender, ability, class, sexual orientation, etc - while only mentioning the LGBTQIA community as receiving more trauma in studies was confusing.

This was packed with excellent information! Thank you for sharing - this should have been a 1.5 hour webinar with so much to learn.

This is worth expanding into a training series instead of one hour. Thank you!
