Who is this conference for?

The Creating Trauma-Sensitive Schools Conference is designed primarily for educators to learn the strategies and implementation of trauma-informed practices in education.  Parents and other people working closely with traumatized children will find many of the workshops helpful.  All who are concerned about helping to address the needs of traumatized children in schools and community are encouraged to join us.  The primary focus is to ensure that educators leave with an understanding of how early and complex trauma impacts children’s ability to learn and what school systems and educators can do to improve these children’s outcomes.

Registration is OPEN. 

Registration: $250, including all keynotes, workshops, a free special event of your choice AND access to the workshop recordings for 90 days.

Parents can attend the special parent track, along with keynotes, a free special event and recording access for only $150.
