- Review evidence-based research on how trauma impacts brain development and student behavior
- Learn about self-regulation and identify triggers that impact students coming from toxic environments
- Introduce systems that are effective in working with all students including challenging students
- Attend a free viewing of Paper Tigers on July 26, 2017 at 7pm
Meet our workshop presenter, Jim Sporleder. Jim is co-author of The Trauma-Informed School and a retired principal of Lincoln High School in Walla Walla. Lincoln High School was one of the first high schools in the country to create a “trauma-informed” school. It gained national attention due to the significant decrease in out of school suspensions, increased graduation rates and the number of students going on to post-secondary education. These dramatic changes caught the attention of Jamie, Redford, who spent a year filming a documentary, Paper Tigers, which tells the Lincoln High School story.
