The Trauma-Skilled Schools Institute is a two-day professional development event that provides in-depth training in the National Dropout Prevention Center’s Trauma-Skilled Schools Model. The Trauma- Skilled Schools Model focuses on the implications for adverse childhood experiences on school behavior and learning, the development of essential resiliency skills in the classroom and in other school experiences, and on acquisition of educator skills that enable trauma-impacted students to succeed in school.

The Trauma-Skilled Schools Institute goes beyond “trauma informed” and “trauma sensitive” to action.  The Institute may be utilized as a first step for schools to begin local implementation of the Trauma-Skilled Schools Model, may be a beginning step for schools desiring to implement the model with additional training and support of the National Dropout Prevention Center, or may be utilized by participants as one of several additional professional development activities leading to individual Certification as a Trauma-Skilled Specialist.

Audience: Administrators, principals, teachers, counselors, dropout prevention coordinators, alternative education teams
