All teachers have children in their class who are dealing with the impact of trauma and loss in their lives. Some through their journeys of foster care and adoption, and others through immigration as refugees, violence in the home, conflict in parental separation and divorce, or a serious illness or death in the family.
This Workshop has been designed specifically for teachers and educators to build greater awareness of how to create a school culture that emphasizes a positive, safe and welcoming environment for children who experience foster care, adoption and other situations that make them vulnerable. Creating school communities of well-being is good for all children.
