About the Event:
The trauma endured through recent events has demonstrated the need for school social workers and educators to emphasize trauma-informed practices in schools. Now is the time to have these crucial conversations. As culturally responsive leaders, school social workers are uniquely positioned to help youth address equity issues in a developmentally appropriate way. Such skills complement youth’s desires to contribute to decision-making processes that impact their lives.

School social workers have a pivotal role in proactively promoting positive youth development and introducing skills that develop youth voice. We invite you to join a dynamic group of school-based professionals to foster ideas for trauma-informed care in your own practice. Our esteemed opening speaker and expert panelists will elevate the voices of practitioners, parents and students, while supplying strategies for providing leadership in preparing educators to address the social and emotional needs of students.
