Register for First Friday

Join us for our the March edition of the First Friday Lecture Series with Dr. Michael Wischnowski and Dr. Susan Hildenbrand from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. School of Education.

According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, prior to the pandemic, more than two thirds of children reported at least one traumatic event by the age of 16.  According to the American Psychological Association, the COVID-19 pandemic will likely increase adverse childhood experiences more intentionally and more broadly.  It is crucial that educators have the knowledge and skills to support students impacted by trauma in their school communities.  This session will present findings from a study that investigated teachers, administrators, and support staff's perceptions of their own preparation to support students in trauma, their knowledge and understanding of the issue and impact of trauma in the classroom, and what is needed to create a trauma-sensitive school community.

This event will take place as a live webinar. You will receive an email with a link to the lecture on Zoom upon registration.
