2016 Conferences Attract 600 People in Elgin, University Park, and Springfield

Schools across the United States are becoming aware of how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the toxic stress they cause impact student behavior and learning. “Trauma-sensitive schools” are organized to build the capacity of teachers, administrators, and support staff to reach and teach students impacted by ACESs. One-day conferences were held to provide participants with an introduction to childhood trauma and the emerging best practices schools are using to confront it.  Below are links to photos and presentations from the conferences.
