Understanding Trauma: A Basic Classroom Approach
Instructor: TBA
Description:

Trauma can affect many aspects of a child's life.  Oftentimes we fail to understand the effects of trauma, possibly not understanding a child's behavior as a result of the trauma.  It can be easy to see a child's behavior as defiant, or disruptive, when the behavior is really a result of the child's response to trauma.  This workshop, with curriculum from Akron's Children Hospital, can help educators, and others who deal with children, understand the impact trauma can have on a child's life.

  What you will learn:

  • The impact of trauma on a child's brain
  • How to manage trauma in the classroom
  • Strengthening resiliency through developmental assets
  • Recognizing & handling secondary traumatic stress

This is a Level 1 training for participants who have had little or no training on trauma.

A Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop
Instructor: The Glen
Description:

If you didn't grow up in poverty, you may be unaware of the "hidden rules" that govern many aspects of life for the poor.  Those experiencing daily instability are often focused on survival, and support systems which are taken for granted by the middle class and wealthy and experienced differently.  Sometimes family support is nonexistent.  If you work with those from poverty, a deeper understanding of their strengths and challenges helps you create opportunities for greater success and satisfaction for those you serve, and for you.

Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and pwerful model which raises our awareness about some key issues that people face daily when they have few resources.  Based in part on Dr. Ruby K. Payne's myth-shattering A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges reaches out to millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with people in poverty.  Attending this workshop helps you and your organization become even more aware of the impact of generational and situational poverty on those experiencing daily instability and on those who serve them.  During this 4-hour workshop, you will learn serious information in a fun and interesting way.  This workshop:

  • Provides an overview of the Bidges Out of Poverty Model;
  • Uses the mental models of poverty, middle class and wealth to develop the Bridges concepts;
  • Engages participants in developing a greater understanding of the hidden rules of class and how 11 specific resources can build capacity for those in poverty;
  • Introduces the Bridges concepts of learning about and developing solutions using the triple lens approach.
