Compassion Fatigue from students experiencing trauma is weighing on
the hearts and minds of educators. We are not therapists, so how can
we respond to provide the best educational experience to help our
children lean and heal? This one-day interactive workshop will give you
an overview of trauma and the effects it can have on our students. We
will explore adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the research
behind it, toxic stress and how our stress response system works, and
trauma’s impact on the brain. We will then go into resilience-building
strategies for schools and programs to consider as they work with

Presenter: Brian Randall, from the NC Center for Resilience and Learning
