Parent Information Session on Helping Students Deal with Traumatic Stress Jan. 29
Traumatic stress can arise from a variety of sources. Having the tools to manage traumatic stress empowers the members of the school community. We hope you can join us for this informative session led by Dr. Denizela Dorsey from Hoech Middle School and Keaton Strong from Ritenour High School about trauma-informed schools.
In a trauma-informed school, the adults in the school community are prepared to recognize and respond to those who have been impacted by traumatic stress. In addition, students are provided with clear expectations and communication strategies to guide them through stressful situations. The goal is to not only provide tools to cope with extreme situations but to create an underlying culture of respect and support.
