Trauma in a child and family's life can have significant impact on a student's readiness to learn. Systemic support for students with trauma histories can help mitigate the effects of trauma as well as boost achievement. The third session will address the effects of trauma on learning and the systemic treatment for trauma-based disorders in schools. Internal Family Systems (IFS), Rolland's model of Chronic Illness and other theory will be utilized to illustrate the value of systemic support to students with trauma histories and their families. The goals of this webinar are two: To appreciate the impact of trauma on academic functioning; and to support the growth of mental health teams in schools to boost student resiliency and achievement.
