"After having taken multiple classes through SCT Grad Classes, I would highly recommend this program to other educators. Professor Berg is flexible, understanding, and a great resource when questions arise, and each of the classes that are offered relate directly to specific topics and issues pertinent to education today. The ability to take classes and work at your own pace through SCT is a great bonus for busy educators."

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.
