Book study - Fostering Resilient Learners 

This book study is ideal as a next step after the Trauma Toolbox workshop to dig deeper into how to address trauma in schools, but can also be taken as an introduction to Trauma-Conscious Teaching. Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom by Kristin Souers and Pete Hall is action-focused, covers major concepts in clear ways, and offers opportunities for reflection and connection. 

Book study format: 3 weeks, approximately 50-70 pages of reading per week. Asynchronous discussion online with 1 “live” Q&A webinar on July 17 from 7:00-8:00 pm EDT. Participants can expect to complete the book study with a better understanding of trauma, learning, and how self-awareness impacts our practice.
