Educators and their students need strong compassion resilience skills to balance the stress and trauma they may experience in their lives. These skills include the ability to maintain physical, emotional, and mental well-being while responding compassionately to one another’s needs.

Join us for a live webinar, and learn how you can improve your school’s understanding of trauma, and enhance the compassion resilience of both staff and students. In this training, presenters from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing will discuss two sections of the Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented Schools Toolkit.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the key concepts from the following sections of the Toolkit:
    • Section 1: Introducing Trauma and Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented Schools
    • Section 3: Building a Culture of Faculty and Staff Compassion Resilience
  • Describe how to support the development of a trauma-informed, resilience-oriented school in your context.
