Trauma Informed Schools

Trauma-Informed Practices in Schools (TIPS)

We offer professional development for Sweetwater staff to better understand trauma and how trauma affects the brain, sense of safety, and behavior in children.  Schools can develop a range of tools to increase safety, address unsafe behaviors and promote connection to school staff. Additionally, the trainings will address the importance of self-care when working with populations exposed to trauma and will offer self-care resources.  Our goal  is to provide school staff with tools to make trauma-informed changes and measures to gauge impact.
