Presenter: Doug Bolton, North Shore Academy Administrator
Intended Audience: Special Education Teachers, Psychologists, Social Workers, SLPs, and any other interested staff
Activity Description: Mental health concerns in schools continue to rise at alarming rates. Schools have a unique opportunity to support the development of resilience in our students. Schools can also exacerbate stress in the lives of our children and increase their vulnerability. This workshop will focus on the three main sources of vulnerability in students -- attachment, self-regulation, and trauma -- and how to create a school community that helps students develop the skills necessary to cope with the stresses of school and life.
After the Kick-Off Topic Event, each Network will have a chance to meet, discuss and determine future topics.
Learning Objectives: Participants will identify how attachment, self-regulation, and trauma impact our students. And identify ways to help students develop skills necessary to cope with the stresses of school and life.
