Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools teaches school professionals how to create trauma-informed schools and classrooms. The training focuses on resilience, exploring the core values and beliefs of educators and places an emphasis on understanding how trauma impacts children and their school experience. Lastly, proactive strategies such as fostering connections, prioritizing social and emotional skills, establishing safety, and promoting play are presented. This course provides detailed information and concrete actions that answer not just the “why” but also the “how” to create the best classroom and school supports for traumatized students and the school professionals who serve them. 

This course covers the first 6 steps of the 10 Steps to Create a Trauma-Informed Resilient School (if you have taken the previous version of the course: Trauma-Informed Schools)


ASCA Annual Conference June 27-30, 2020 now @home

Each year, we look forward to bringing the school counseling community together at the ASCA Annual Conference. But this year, based on decisions by the state of Washington regarding large gatherings – and our desire to keep members safe – we will transform the ASCA Annual Conference into an online experience. Even though we can’t gather in Seattle this year as we had planned, we can all still be together. ASCA is excited to announce ASCA@Home, an all-new online educational experience. ASCA@Home, June 29–July 2, will offer keynote speakers, almost 90 breakout sessions and special events that will put the “social” back in social distancing.
