What does it mean to be trauma-informed?
To be trauma-informed means to have an understanding of the negative impact of trauma on a person’s physical and mental health. For educators, it means to have an awareness of how trauma is prevalent in students’ behavior, learning, and overall well-being. Trauma-informed schools have staff who understand the importance of the 4R’s of trauma-informed support. According to the NCTSN, those four R’s are:
Realizing the impact that trauma has on a student and/or entire community
Recognizing signs of trauma
Responding to the needs of those impacted by trauma
What Trauma-Informed Practices (TIPS) trainings are available for FYSCPs?
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing Safer at Home orders, the TAP team will host a series of virtual trauma workshops. These workshops will temporarily take the place of the previously scheduled training of trainers. They are designed to provide FYSCPs with the knowledge, strategies, and resources to offer technical assistance in the area of trauma-informed practices to their schools, districts, and partnering organizations.
