TRANSFORMING TRAUMA (LEVEL 1)

HOW SCHOOLS BECOME HEALING PLACES: THE ROLE OF SCHOOL COUNSELORS IN PROMOTING THE FIVE-KEY PRACTICES

with David Melnick

March 14, 2024 | 9:00am - 3:00pm | Live Virtual | $180 | 5 Professional Learning Hours


Many students arrive at school with unprecedented adversity due to high rates of traumatic stress, social

isolation, and systemic inequities. Often our traditional methods of relationship building, discipline, and

instruction fall short for these students, leaving educators strained, frustrated, and self-doubting. In this

1-credit graduate course, we study the harmful effects of trauma on students, their families, and the

workforce. We examine how traditional mindsets can cause harm and even exacerbate the very conditions

we are trying to address.


Trauma work, whether with individuals, families, schools, mental health agencies or other organizations,

is relational work. It relies on our ability to connect, reflect and build safe communities. School counselors

are often uniquely positioned to help in these areas. Examining and discussing trauma is also a

deconstructive process; we must take a careful look at systems of oppression, like white supremacy, and our own participation with inequitable systems, including schools.
