Have you ever considered what might be behind the misbehavior, anger, or poor performance of some of your students? When children have experienced a traumatic event, such as a loved one's death, violence, abuse, neglect, natural disaster, serious illness, or other distressful event, it can have a profound effect on their emotional and mental health, along with their behaviors. Join Brenda Hauff as she describes some of the common causes of trauma that might affect children, as well as the effects that trauma might have on their mental and emotional well-being and behavior. In addition to explaining some of the symptoms of trauma and how to recognize it, Brenda will cover some of the brain-based research on trauma and how it affects learning and performance in the classroom. Brenda will share strategies and techniques that have helped many of the K-8 students in her trauma-informed alternative school be successful. While these strategies are geared towards students who have experienced trauma, they can help all students succeed.
