Facilitator: Teresa Dempsey, Director of Learning & Leadership, Fairfield County ESC
Fee: $125.00 per participant for each online book study
Grounded in research and the authors' experience working with 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. As an educator, you face the impact of trauma in the classroom every day. Let this book be your guide to seeking solutions rather than dwelling on problems, building relationships that allow students to grow, thrive, and—most assuredly—learn at high levels.
The authors—a mental health therapist and a veteran principal—provide proven, reliable strategies to help you:
1. Understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom.
2. Build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels.
3. Adopt a strengths-based approach that leads you to recalibrate how you view destructive student behaviors and to perceive what students need to break negative cycles.
4. Head off frustration and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish.
