Educators and their students need strong compassion resilience skills to balance the stress and trauma they may experience in their lives. These skills include the ability to maintain physical, emotional, and mental well-being while responding compassionately to one another’s needs.

In this webinar, learn how you can improve your school’s understanding of trauma and enhance the compassion resilience of both staff and students. You will also hear presenters from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing discuss two sections of the Trauma-Informed, Resilience-Oriented Schools Toolkit.
