The goal of this book study is to provide educators with an understanding of the causes and consequences of trauma on the students and stakeholders in our school communities. This book study will be discussion based (no quizzes or assessments). Drawing on more than thirty years of experience, Bessel van der Kolk describes how trauma literally reshapes both the brain and the body. This book is a product of therapists and scientists integrating recent advances in brain science, attachment research, and body awareness into treatments that can free trauma survivors from their past.
Participants will learn science-based treatments for students dealing with trauma.
Participants will gain an understanding of the true nature regarding traumatic experiences and their effect on a student's learning and behavior.
Participants will understand how trauma and life experiences play into the function/disfunction of our students' behaviors.
