Trauma Resiliency

Building Student Resilience Through Positive Connections (2206-19)

Building positive connections with your students helps to build resiliency, which, in turn, can help them cope with trauma, stress, and adversity. These positive connections can help serve as a protective factor for the student. Building connections with your students is a trauma-skilled practice that also helps to promote engagement, attendance, and achievement. That is why being intentional about connecting with all your students is so important. This micro-course will help you develop strategies for connecting to even the most distant student.
