Course Description
Social-Emotional Learning, Equity, & Wellness 4 Wounded Students
Joe Hendershott, Ed.D., Founder
Session Description: 
Emotional poverty has become a deterrent to equity and academic success. Research shows that almost half the nation's children have experienced trauma, which has a profound impact on their behaviors, relationships, mental health, and/or learning. Educators are looking to be resourced with a better understanding of the social-emotional needs of children of trauma in order to reach them, teach them, and avoid using ineffective strategies and consequences. As we navigate the repercussions of this past year's universal traumas, it becomes even more paramount to draw upon strategies to keep wounded children engaged in their educational settings to ensure physical and emotional safety as well as equitable, connected communities where HOPE is possible.
