Survey for Biopsychosocial Approach to Trauma-Informed Schools
At its convention held in early November, CASP offered an introductory course, Biopsychosocial Approach to Trauma-Informed Schools, presented by Dr. Elaine Fletcher-Janzen. This workshop was a taste of a proposed 36-hour course CASP is considering sponsoring as a certificated program that would offer a multidisciplinary approach to building and maintaining trauma-sensitive and trauma-informed schools.

The full description of the course can be found at:

Dr. Fletcher-Janzen’s bio can be found at:

Before CASP offers this course, we thought it prudent to measure the number of CASP members who are interested in making a commitment to 36 hours of this instruction. It is hoped that this survey will produce results that will allow CASP to decide not only whether to sponsor the program but give us some guidance on when it should be held and potential cost.

If you are interested in this topic, please take this survey. We will report the results in the Winter issue of CASP Today, online and in an email to all CASP members. The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes. Thank you.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES) conducted by The Division of Violence Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with Kaiser Permanente, in 1995-1997 found that almost 40% of the 17,000 respondents in the Kaiser sample reported two or more ACEs and 12.5% experienced four or more. And the numbers for children of color are much higher. How important is it that school psychologists have an understanding of the basic biology of the individual all the way up to the structure of the trauma-informed community, so that knowledge can be applied to psychological assessment and the differential diagnosis of trauma-related conditions so we can detect when they are present and how they affect cognitive and emotional functioning in the classroom.
