Relational Schools

Trauma Informed Schools Training

When everyone is in trauma, the way through is together.

The 21st Century is a relational deprived century, since the advent of the iPhone in 2007, the impact of technology on the human nervous system, interpersonal connection and belongingness is shocking. Take this ever-increasing lack of empathetic attunement and then add the impact of a global pandemic and subsequent isolation and you get what schools have been experiencing since reopening. Every school is reporting increases in school refusal, discipline referrals, acts of violence and intolerance, suicides, disrespect, and behavioral and emotional dysregulation. The learning recovery has out paced the recovery of connection and a sense of safety for students and teachers in the buildings. In a context of trauma, control is not restorative. It is not about increasing security or more control, it is about reestablishing relationships and connection in support of the return of empathy; first to oneself and then others.

Relational Schools Training is a multi-part program that is builds on the foundation of the 4 stages of developing a trauma informed culture in schools. Each module of the professional development training and associated parent nights, lays the foundation for greater belongingness and safety in the learning community. Becoming trauma aware and the related information as to the purpose of belongingness as a logical means to improved safety and performance in teaching and learning. From there we move into becoming more trauma sensitive and how this naturally invites the greater possibility of seeing others as people suffering and not problems. As the teachers and parents grow in the understanding of trauma the culture shifts into becoming more trauma responsive, looking at how greater understanding shows up in the buildings and at home; initiatives are built and implemented in communicating more empathetic attunement and availability. The actual highest level of trauma care involvement is to be trauma informed. This is where all the training builds to, where the learning community commits to creating an environment that places relational practices and polices as priorities. These measures are not only to prevent re-traumatization but to allow an opportunity for reestablishing relatedness and the recovery of learning in all dimensions, post traumatic growth.

COVID-19 has truly impacted the entire school community and as reading makes all things possible for students, a strong social emotional foundation supports both academic and emotional growth. We are proud to work collaboratively with Integrated in essentially building a school based services model in the district.
The staff really enjoyed the training and are looking forward to our next professional development session with Integrated Care Concepts and Consultation.
