Network is full. We have reached our capacity of teams for this year.

As an educator, you face the impact of trauma in your school every day. Whether it is acute or complex trauma, those experiences disrupt brain activity and can lead students to exhibit disruptive and/or disengaged behaviors. This year-long cohort (6 sessions) requires a team of five* building representatives which could include, but are not limited to: building leader, classroom teacher, counselor, special education teacher, school nurse, school resource officer, etc. School representatives must attend all six sessions.
