Advanced Mentor Training:
TRAUMA-INFORMED MENTORING PART 2 w/ Kelly Vagts
HMK Elementary School
A Trauma Lens Part 2: Helping mentors implement a trauma-informed approach with mentees and families.
Part 1 guided mentors in developing a trauma lens so that we don’t take a child’s behavior personally, to help us look past the behavior.
Part 2 will introduce specific ways to help a mentor connect with a child who has experienced trauma. It will include examples of how to teach children brain basics and self-regulation skills, how to create a safe environment, and self-care and self-regulation tips for the mentor. Any mentor can attend Part 2; there is no prerequisite. However, Part 1 one was a full house! Arrive early for a seat.
