Trauma Sensitive Approach

   

Learning Objectives:

Explain how neuroscience informs our understanding of the impact of trauma and toxic stress on behaviors.
   
Discuss the reasons why negative consequences and punishment are not effective approaches for changing challenging behaviors.
   
Identify specific lagging skills that may interfere with positive acceptable behaviors.
   
Describe methods for teaching lagging skills and supporting their development.
   
Explain how the practices of regulation, relating and reasoning are important to this process.
   
Discuss components of alternative discipline approaches and how they are effective in changing behaviors. 


Description:
Students impacted by trauma and toxic stress may act in ways that are difficult to understand, redirect or change. This session will explore approaches, methods and strategies of addressing resistant, significant behaviors that are grounded in neuroscience and how they can be applied at the universal as well as the individual student level. Specific examples of alternatives to traditional discipline and suspension will be offered. Barriers to implementation of these strategies will be discussed.
