Schools are a critical setting for supporting youth who have experienced trauma. When schools are trauma-informed, there is often a significant improvement in student behavior, growth in academic achievement, a reduction in suspensions and expulsions, an improved sense of teacher satisfaction and safety, and more

Trauma-Informed Practices for School Staff is a self-led, online training course that teaches administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, and school-based mental health professionals how to:

  • Understand how trauma can impact students’ learning, behaviors, emotions, and social interactions at school
  • Utilize practical, universal strategies to support students and help them regulate their behaviors and emotions
  • Reduce the risk of re-traumatization using the frameworks of PACE (Pause, Acknowledge, Connect, Engage) and Safety, Predictability, and Control
  • Mitigate the toll the work can take on school staff through sustainable well-being and self-care routines


  • Audience: All K-12 school staff
  • Length: 7 hours
