A System Approach to Support Mental Health and Trauma

in our Schools
3-Part Series
Facilitated by Danielle Theis

Part 1: Foundation & Recovery

In order for schools to become Trauma Responsive, they must first comprehend the true impact trauma has on children’s ability to be responsive to adult managed places and learning environments. Teach to Heal’s Foundational training will cover these components to set the stage for the remainder of the series. Teach to Heal’s Recovery training will focus on the impact of the last two years of events and how our educational leaders should plan to support professionals, student support staff, and our students.

Parts 2 & 3: Role Definition & Culture and Environmental Management

Pre-Requisite: Part 1

As schools move toward Trauma Responsive Strategies they must provide clarity around role definition. This sounds easier than it is. Teach to Heal’s Role Definition and Culture and Environmental Management training focuses on the imperative nature of clear role definition in our schools. We will also focus on what must be in place in our systems to establish and maintain cultures that foster what is necessary to meet the needs of ALL our students. In addition, we will define how to utilize the learning environment as an instructional tool to maximize student engagement and progress.

Part 4: Setting the Interdependent Table

Pre-Requisite: Parts 1, 2, 3

This day of learning will allow us the opportunity to review and discuss implementation thus far. We will share our challenges and talk about how to move forward. Teach to Heal’s Setting the Interdependent Table training will assist leaders in maintaining effective teaming processes inclusive of solution focused thinkers integrating their awareness of trauma responsive strategies with the perceptions of those they serve. This is the most critical discussion we have as educators. Our kids and the success of our schools depends on it.
