Trauma informed positive education: strategies for your classroom

Monday 6 April |  1.30pm (Auckland)  
Trauma informed positive education: strategies for your classroom

For students to succeed they must feel like they belong in the classroom community. However, students on the margins struggle to understand themselves, let alone others and community feels like something for everybody else, not them. Vulnerable members of our classrooms need help to unearth the courage required to be included.


As teachers we possess great power to create the right environment for social and emotional inclusion to help students achieve their goals. This presentation will explore practical classroom belonging strategies to support all students.
