Almost 100 teachers, counselors, and administrators from 20 communities participated in our virtual Summer Institute that focused on trauma-invested practices to help learners thrive.
Childhood trauma expert Kristin Souers and former school principal Pete Hall led the workshop, using their book, Fostering Resilient Learners, as a guide. Participants learned ways to mitigate the negative effects of chronic stress by fostering resilience of both students and themselves.
"I wanted to participate in something this summer that would help me be better at my job next school year. This learning experience was spot on with what is happening in my district and will be incredibly beneficial to all of my colleagues who also took the course.
Rather than the traditional in-person workshop of 3-4 days, educators spent the summer reading the book and completing eight online, self-paced modules, bookended by two synchronous online sessions.
