Trauma-informed Instruction: Building Strong 1:1 Relationships

About the course

Students who experience trauma often struggle in school. Learn how to build a foundation for hope and healing with students impacted by trauma, through a series of brief conversations over a span of ten consecutive days. This course, designed for teachers, specialists, and administrators in grades K-12, demonstrates an example of a two-minute conversation with Kate, age 9. Next, Barbara is joined by a therapeutic mentor, MichaelAngelo Colon, to reflect on the conversation with Kate in order to identify insights and action steps. Tools to make strategy implementation easier are provided, such as a 2-minute conversation script, discussion tracking datasheet, and 2 x 10 class roster. With 2×10, you can make a difference for your affected student one conversation at a time.
