Title of Session: Identifying Your “Iceberg” Student: Uncovering the Trauma
Trauma history is often hidden; however, the BIG behaviors can be seen by all. Trauma is tricky but managing it doesn’t have to be. We will learn how to identify trauma responses and behavior to navigate through an iceberg meltdown. Trust Based Relational Intervention will be discussed as well as trauma responses and PTSD among school age children.
