"Eight teachers including our Principal from our small, PK-Grade 8 religious school in northwestern Wisconsin took a "Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support" course through SCT during spring/summer of 2013. As a result of the course, we learned much about PBIS and now we are continuing to develop and plan to implement a PBIS system. The instructor, Tammy Berg, worked with us along the way, and was extremely flexible in allowing us to work on many of the course projects as a team. Thank you Tammy! Looking forward to more professional development coursework with you in the future!"

This course explores an urgent and growing issue--childhood trauma--and its profound effect on learning and teaching. Grounded in research and the experience of working with trauma-affected students , this course will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. Within this course, you will begin to understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom. In addition, strategies will be offered that will help you to build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels. There will also be some consideration in ways to deal with stress and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish. The projected outcome of this course is to provide classroom teachers with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies for creating trauma sensitive classrooms as well as offer ideas to help build relationships that allow students to grow, thrive, and learn at high levels.
