  • Develop an understanding of trauma-informed principles and practices that can support learning, development, and well-being.
  • Acquire strategies and tools for promoting social and emotional learning, self-care, and community care in your school.
  • Engage in critical reflection to examine and hone your practice with a trauma-informed lens.
  • Access a wealth of resources to use and share in your role.

Educators can register for free and earn a certificate of completion. Pennsylvania- certified educators who provide their PPID number and complete the module also earn 6 Act 48 hours.
