Trauma-Informed Principles and Practice in Teacher Education

Presenter: Heather Fox Griffith

Abstract: The overwhelming number of children likely to have adverse childhood experiences in Canada, and worldwide, is alarming.

When trauma-inducing adverse childhood events are experienced at sensitive times of growth and development, the neurological activity and architecture of the brain is affected in ways that can impact the ability to process information. Trauma can impact learning and complicate the development of pro-social relationships with peers, teachers and others. Moreover, children who have experienced trauma have an elevated risk for mental health problems, substance abuse, physical health challenges and later involvement in the criminal justice system both as offenders and victims. I discuss, in fundamental terms, how trauma reactions are processed at the time trauma occurs from a neurosequential development perspective. I argue for the inclusion of trauma-informed principles and arts-based practice in teacher education and in the classroom, in collaboration with a team of helping professionals. I share specific examples of classroom activities that integrate a neurosequential framework with five domains of learning for optimal student engagement.

Everyone is welcome. Coffee is provided. No registration is required.
