The Trauma-Informed Toolkit for Educators Course

The Trauma-Informed Toolkit for Educators is designed to provide educators with a deeper understanding of trauma and its effects on childhood development, while offering a set of tools to help create supportive, healing centered, trauma-informed environments within a wide range of academic and recreational settings where students can grow.

In each training module, you will engage with the knowledge and practices that New York City Children’s Theater uses to train their own staff of Teaching Artists when teaching young people through a trauma-informed lens.

The Trauma-Informed Tool Kit for Educators modules will feature 9 key topics and explore the 6 key elements of a trauma-informed approach as outlined by SAMHSA, The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Welcome to the Trauma Informed Toolkit for Educators

Co-Host Sara Morgulis introduces the sections of the course, the experts who helped create it, and what you can expect to learn.
