Event Information


Research continues to support negative outcomes in adulthood related to mental and relational health for children who have experienced trauma. In this webinar, Pennsylvania’s trauma-informed principles will be discussed as a framework for moving toward the development of trauma-informed systems. Part of this journey involves addressing childhood experiences through a trauma-informed lens. In terms of bullying, this means we need to identify bullying as a type of school violence and understand it as a type of traumatic experience for students and staff. This presentation will focus on identifying trauma, signs of trauma exposure in students, and how adults can use trauma-informed principles to address exposure to trauma.
