AA3729 Through a Different Lens: Understanding & Supporting Students with Mental Health Issues
This workshop emphasizes proposed changes that focus on practices and associated policies that lead to creating a trauma responsive school community. School leaders will learn to identify instructional strategies that encourage emotional regulation and its alignment to academic achievement. Specifically, this workshop will also provide an essential foundation for developing progressive school practices that reduce the reliance on punishment and exclusion as a response to student behavior challenges and is aligned to the pending state changes. Given the collective trauma associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, this workshop will also provide support for thinking through the novel challenges of preparing for the next school year through a trauma-responsive lens.
