Session:  Transitioning to a Trauma Informed School; Overcoming Barriers

Presenters:  Megan Coon, Abby D'Elia, Melissa Hindes, Rob Flanders, Samantha Eichele

The Trauma Team at Yates Elementary will present their ideas, barriers, and solutions when transitioning to a trauma informed school. Data to support specific tactics will be shared. The trauma informed approach based on a school wide book study of Help for Billy, assisted Yates School to identify successful strategies for students, staff, and families. When adopting and shifting the school culture to be more trauma informed and promote student resilience, unforeseen barriers and obstacles were encountered. The cycle of evaluation of the success of these strategies will be shared so participants can leave with an understanding of potential roadblocks and strategies that were successful at Yates School.
