Trauma-Informed Resilience-Oriented Schools Learning Community

This learning community has been adapted into a self-paced training.

In this National Center for School Safety Learning Community, moderated in partnership with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, participants came together and learned more about Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented (TR) Schools, engaged in meaningful peer-to-peer learning and shared their own successes, barriers, and skill-building capacity as related to the implementation and expansion of trauma-informed, resilience-oriented practices in their schools and school districts.

Over the course of four sessions, subject experts covered topics including creating a safe and secure environment for students and staff, developing diverse and inclusive hiring and human resource processes, addressing educational disparities in the classroom, and addressing challenging behaviors in the classroom. Participants also had the opportunity to submit their school or school district for a case presentation and discussed their successes and challenges with TR Schools as a group.

Additional information about the learning community can be found in the Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented (TR) Schools Learning Community Charter.
