SUN trauma informed learning community wraps up the school year
Over the last two school years, a group of SUN Site Managers met monthly to learn together about how trauma informed practices and principles apply to a community school model. The group has grappled with questions of how to better support both students and staff who have been impacted by trauma as they navigate SUN programming, whether it is the extended day, food pantry program or case management.
After this period of learning, what do they recommend as the essential 'toolkit' for the school based social service provider?
- This Trauma and Resilience toolkit is a fabulous resource for anyone on the hunt for training materials or handouts, for both staff AND students.
Katie Lauderdale (Centennial HS SUN, Impact NW),
Pam Lyons (Peninsula K-8 SUN, Neighborhood House) and
Madeliene Hernandez (Ron Russel SUN, El Programa Hispano Catolico) for their valuable contribution to this group over the last two years.
