Not Your Average Conference

In this season, there are so many 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 hybrid event will offer live presentations, interactive networking opportunities and access to virtual breakout sessions and recorded keynote sessions through June 1, 2023 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 will connect with colleagues as you practice content, reflect, apply and practice skills together.

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.

For the 7th year of the Trauma-Informed Schools Institute we are excited to offer this conference as a hybrid event with options to attend live, virtually or in collaboration with your team.   

Virtual Option:

Attendees that elect to attend the conference virtually will have access to live streams of all keynote sessions, including the opportunity to ask questions and interact with other virtual attendees. Two breakout sessions will be offered virtually during each breakout session time.  Virtual attendees can attend live or watch the session replays.

Department/School Option:

Because we believe that trauma-informed learning is so important, we have created an option for schools and departments to be able to participate in this conference together. So if multiple members of the counseling, social work or student services department at your district are interested in this conference, the department/school option is a great way to access the content at a low per person cost. We do believe that learning happens best in collaboration with others, so we encourage you to participate live and/or bring together a team locally to learn together.
