DEADLINE FOR ONLINE PURCHASES IS 11/1/18 AT 6P PST. Tickets limited at door.

Anxiety and depression in students is running rampant. Workplace stress for educators and staff as well as rising litigation costs for schools are also top concerns for communities across the country.

How can we reduce tension and improve how staff, students, families and community partners work together to create trusted, safe environments for all?

Trauma Informed in Education brings together proven behavioral, communication and conflict resolution strategies to diffuse, calm and heal so that schools become more resilient. Led by Susan Jones, founder and principal of Creative Behavior Systems, Susan is an educational behavioral counselor, ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) expert, trauma-informed and restorative practices facilitator, and resilient schools program strategist. She has worked with a range of clients, from educators to federal judges.

Join us for a full day of interactive learning, idea exchange and networking; learn what trauma informed is, how to use it and other collaborative strategies to create safe, mindful and resilient school environments. Morning breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
