Becoming Trauma-Informed: A Primer for Educators

Our Center for Continuing and Professional Education is currently offering a self-guided, online course to provide educators with the tools to identify and help students who face the impacts of trauma.

In this course, you will learn the basic understanding of psychological trauma and its impact in both K-12 and higher education and strategies for intervention. Learners will be able to recognize and respond to signs of traumatic stress and know where to find additional help when necessary.
