TRAIN THE TRAINER WORKSHOP

Interested in being a Connections Matter Trainer?

 WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:

– Interactive, discussion-based curriculum
– Better understanding of how trauma impacts brain development and a child’s ability to cope/succeed in school
– Concrete knowledge about ACEs and how they affect a child’s learning environment
– Action planning and next steps for implementing trauma-informed strategies in schools
– Strategies and ideas for helping students, families, and teachers to connect with one another
– Resources specifically related to trauma and resilience in education
– Connecting with other members of the education community
– Tools for overall building more caring and resilient learning environments

In our TRAIN THE TRAINER, we show the impacts that high levels of stress have on an individual’s health, and mental and social outcomes. We explore–through discussion, activities, a film screening, and action planning–how communities can come together to create a common language around trauma and resilience, and begin taking steps toward creating more compassionate, trauma-sensitive environments.

Once trained, you will join the Connections Matter NC team and deliver trainings in your community and neighboring communities. Community trainings are fee-based, and trainers will be compensated for their time. Technical support will be provided by PCANC.

Group rates are available for Prevention Action Network members. Contact Nadia Moreta, nmoreta@preventchildabusenc.org or 919-829-8009 (ext: 621) for more information.
