Upcoming Workshop Helps Teachers and Students Deal with Toxic Stress and Trauma

Lassen County Foster Youth Services will be presenting a special free workshop geared towards promoting academic achievement and social and emotional success for students who have experienced toxic stress and trauma will be held November 15th from 3:30 to 7:00p.m. in Middleton Hall at Lassen Community College.

The workshop, taught by Kelly Rizzi, Director of School and District Support for Shasta County, will focus on ‘Trauma Informed Practices’ which are the link to academic achievement and social/emotional success for students who’ve experienced toxic stress and trauma.

Due to repeated triggering of the fight or flight system, the neurology of these students is different than their grade level counterparts, and taking in new knowledge can often be challenging. Navigating social and emotional situations can also be difficult.

Trauma Informed Practices help teachers and students to be better regulated, which decreases behavior issues, and prepares the brain for learning.

The training is for FYS Liaisons, Social Workers, Probation Officers, CASA Advocates and Teachers. Seating is limited to only 75 tickets. Follow this link to Eventbrite for free event registration.

Workshop Topics Will Include:

Brain Breaks
Short movements for students to bring calm to the mind and oxygen to the brain, increasing blood flow and enhancing learning.

Self Regulation
The importance of teachers being regulated and how to teach students the skills of self regulation.

Creating a Safe Environment
Practical ideas for the school and classroom.

Adverse Childhood Experiences Study ACEs
Science that sets the template for how the developing brain is altered and why learning and social/emotional tasks are especially difficult for students of trauma.

Teaching Children about their Minds and about Growth Mindset
Ideas and resources for teaching children about how their minds work.

The Science of the Brain
Research and science about how the mind works, and how it relates to our students and their behavior in the classroom.

Learning Targets

Classroom Applications
Classroom practices that work and how to apply them.
