You can tune into the conference from anywhere with internet access.
Keynote sessions will be one hour in length followed by fifteen minutes of live Q&A with the presenter. Breakout sessions will be 60 minutes. With your registration, all session recordings will be available until 5:00 PM CST on June 1, 2022.
In this season, there are so many virtual conferences, trainings, and workshops out there. So what makes this one different?
Sometimes attending online trainings can feel a little like playing the lottery. You pour over the websites and research the presenters hoping to choose something that will be engaging and practical. Despite my best efforts, I often end up in sessions where the actual content didn't match the description at all or I am left with the question "what's next?". While there is clearly some awesome content to be found in these type of trainings, it all too often requires a lot of effort, and a bit of luck, to find.
We designed this conference to be different!
We have designed each session to be full of engaging content and provide practical applications of the material. All of our sessions are presented by educators and administrators that understand the challenges and rewards of doing this work.
This one of a kind online event will offer live presentations, interactive networking opportunities and access to recordings of sessions through June 1, 2022 so that you can go at your own pace and with what works for your schedule.
The Trauma-Informed Schools Institute will address key skills and mindsets needed to develop school environments where students and staff feel supported and connected. You’ll walk away feeling empowered, ready to implement new strategies and actions, while deepening commitment and anchoring into a vision for your school. You will connect with colleagues as you practice content, reflect, apply and practice skills together.
Wondering how to create predictability and routine in midst of uncertainty and change.
Looking for ways to build relationships and connect as a way to support learning.
We are designing this conference to be packed full of practical applications and strategies of how you can build practices that promote educator resilience to meet the social and emotional demands of their professional and private lives and mitigate the impact of trauma in the lives of students. We need safe spaces and caring relationships before students and staff can focus on learning.
We long for the time to get together in person for this conference again! Sign up for our mailing list to be the first to know about our in-person events for 2022.
This year, we encourage you to gather as school buildings to host watch parties using our watch party kit included with school-wide registration.
