My Name is Trauma (MNIT) Online Workshop

About this Event

My Name is Trauma (MNIT) creates an opportunity to learn about Trauma in a way that is educational, practical, playful, and imaginative. “Trauma The Tiger'' is used to represent the effects of trauma in the body and the natural impact that a traumatizing experience can have on a child. This approach helps educators and students externalize a traumatizing experience so that they can normalize its impact on their lives and perform better in the classroom. The concept of FIGHT, FLIGHT, and FREEZE is explained with “Trauma The Tiger'' and how the brain and body instinctually default to one of the three states when an event is experienced as traumatic. As a result, “Trauma the Tiger'' will be triggered into a state of “trying to protect you”, since the body is in survival mode. Creative sensory-based interventions and classroom strategies are explored to regulate and calm emotions, restore a sense of safety and resilience, and move from victim to survivor.

This workshop will help educators (K-12) and administrators understand the nature of trauma and its impact on everyone's physical and mental health. Participants will leave the session with effective resilience building techniques, proactive classroom management, and positive support coping strategies. Learn more about My Name is Trauma here.

The first 20 registrants from different schools will earn a hardcover copy of the My Name is Trauma illustrated children's book for their school's Student Services.
