WEBINAR: Trauma-Sensitive Leadership: Creating Caring, Safe and Supportive Learning Environments

The critical role of the school leader in moderating the effects of trauma is well supported by research. The trauma-sensitive leader realizes the impact of trauma; recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in staff, students and their families; and responds by creating safe, supportive practices and spaces where all belong.

As the prevalence of trauma continues to increase, becoming a trauma-sensitive leader has never been so important!
