Staff Development

Shifting a school culture and climate to be more trauma-informed includes increasing all staff capacity to utilize a trauma-informed, socially just, anti-racist, and equitable lens across all the systems and supports with which students and families interact.

Improving school culture requires significant investment from school leadership, particularly around staff professional development. School culture and climate shifts when schools implement intensive professional development, consultation, and coaching for staff around trauma-informed practices and wellbeing.
