Working with Black/Brown Males Who Have Experienced Trauma
Over 50% of students experience trauma in their lives and those students are 3 times likely to experience academic failure, 5 times likely for attendance problems and 6 times likely for behavioral problems. If you don't allow yourself to see who that student really is, you will only see what you expect to see. This interactive workshop will give educators and administrators strategies for working with students who experienced trauma while working on your own stress management.
