Trauma-Informed Practices Course

I don't know about you, but I had to learn how to deal with trauma in my school the hard way.

You're probably the type of person who wants to do what is best for kids, who wants to help them be successful, no matter what hurdles they may be facing. You probably go to great lengths to help kids.

I created this course to help you know how to deal with trauma in your school, not from a social worker's perspective, but from the perspective of an acting principal, who has dealt with this every day for the last 15 years. I'm here to help you get practical training on dealing with trauma, in short, less-than-15-minute increments. Enjoy the free lesson on self-care below.
