Course Overview


Pre-requisite Courses: Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools and Resetting for Resilience

Course Overview: Healing Trauma and Restoring Resilience in Schools takes participants deeper into the brain science of trauma and toxic stress, exploring the polyvagal theory, epigenetics, and the science of resilience. The content emphasizes the importance of hope when working with at-risk students. Participants will learn about the SITCAP® model (Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents, and Parents) and practice sensory-based interventions from a variety of SITCAP® model programs, including Healing the Experience of Trauma: A Path to Resilience specific for schools. Experiential activities will also showcase how to process trauma and nurture and restore resilience in students of all ages.

This course contains much of the same content from the former Healing the Experience of Trauma: A Path to Resilience online course, and has been adapted for school professionals.
