#11823 ACES II Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Symptoms in School

When students have been exposed to traumatic events and situations, their neurodevelopment is altered in ways that impact their behavior, executive functioning and academic performance in school.  These students often become our most challenging to serve and support.  Building on the information in the ACE Interface training, this session will delve deeper into the neuro-psycho-social impact of trauma, and how these symptoms are exhibited in the classroom.  Then, participants will explore a three-tiered approach for reducing symptoms and supporting healthy development.  This approach will include practical tools for preventing traumatic symptoms through environmental and academic strategies, as well as evidence-based approaches to handling our own stress in order to make better connections with students who need it most.

Taught by Jennifer Best, MS Ed., CFLE, CFCS-HDFS, BCC from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, participants will walk away with materials and hands-on tools that they can start implementing the day after the training.

Training supported and endorsed by the Eastern Iowa – Western Illinois Trauma Informed Care Consortium.

REQUIREMENT: Participants MUST have attend the prerequisite, ACE I- Interface: Understanding the impact of trauma on health, behavior and your role in building resiliency for positive student outcomes prior to attending this session. It has been offered many times at the ROE over the last 3 years.
