A Trauma Lens: Helping mentors understand and implement a trauma-informed approach with mentees and families.

1 in 4 children experience a traumatic event that affects their behavior, emotions, and ability to learn. For mentors, this translates to students who may have defiant behavior, a lack of emotional regulation, self harm (such as cutting/ burning), bullying, or other challenging symptoms.

In this workshop you will learn what trauma is, how it affects children developmentally, why it is important for you as a mentor to have a trauma lens.

(In Part 2, which will be held in February, Kelly will cover specific mentoring skills to help your mentee.)
