Integrating & Installing Trauma within your Current System

Teams participating in this training will learn to apply the core features of a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) to install a trauma-informed approach that is integrated within their current PBIS framework. Teams will use virtual breakout rooms to have time for action planning 1) a professional development plan, 2) assessing and resource mapping current practices with a trauma-informed lens, and 3) identifying data for monitoring fidelity and outcomes of a trauma-informed approach.


PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that participants in this training have a strong understanding of trauma and the impact of trauma on brain development and learning. Please review the objectives from Trauma Awareness training to self-assess your knowledge. It is recommended that participants who are unable to confidently respond to those objectives participate in that training series prior to this series.


Who Should Participate

  • Participants with a strong understanding of trauma and the impact of trauma on learning (review objectives from Trauma Awareness training to self-assess)

  • District and school-based teams include an administrator, school-based clinician(s), and teacher leaders representative of your school.

  • Additional team members might include school nurses and others with mental health and/or behavioral expertise.

  • It is recommended for team members identified for this training to be members on the current school-wide team (i.e., Tier 1 team, Tier 2 team) as trauma-informed practices should be aligned within your three-tiered framework rather than a separate initiative.

Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe how PBIS provides the framework for data, systems, and practices for a trauma-informed approach

  • Teams will assemble a professional development using multi-tiered logic

  • Teams will assess current practices with a trauma-informed lens and action plan for modifying, strategically abandoning, and adding practices

  • Teams will assemble an evaluation plan to monitor fidelity and impact of trauma-informed approach
