[Webinar] Trauma-informed Practices in Schools and Beyond

This three-part webinar series between Aperture Education and Dovetail Learning provides a robust overview of how to create a trauma-informed school community.


Trauma 101

Learn the history and context of the science behind Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the biological/neurobiological effects of toxic stress. This is a basic overview of what and how ACEs affect children and adults. By understanding what is happening within our bodies, we can use and choose trauma-informed strategies (to be covered in parts 2 and 3) to best serve our students and ourselves.

Creating a Trauma-informed School Community

Trauma exists within systems because our systems are created and maintained by people. During this session, we will begin to explore approaches and ways to take our awareness of trauma to inform change at a systemic level. Through an appreciative inquiry approach, you will learn where you can invite systemic evolution.

About Dovetail Learning

Dovetail Learning is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening resilience in children and the adults who serve them. Leveraging our decades of hands-on experience helping children, families, and professionals, we transform how society approaches health and wellness at a human and systems level. We Are Resilient™ strengthens resilience skills in people of all ages, and disrupts cycles of trauma to promote healing in organizations and families across generations. With a focus on collaboration, We Are Resilient™ is being taught to teams in health clinics, schools, businesses, and other organizations so that whole communities have a common language to foster wellness together. We believe that an understanding of human development should be universally accessible to all, and the Open Educational Resources (OER) model (free and adaptable in any context) is the fastest and most effective way to reach those in need. We strive to scale our work to make it available to all who want it.
