Friday, February 28th, we will have the Trauma-Informed Sex Education module from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. There is no cost to attend, but you must have attended a Foundations Day 1 training.

Trauma-Informed Sex Education
Trauma can have a direct impact on a young person’s learning experience in sex education classes. Facilitating from a trauma-informed approach will reduce the changes of re-traumatizing your students and help to create compassionate, resiliency-focused classrooms. This module defines trauma and its impact, provides an overview of a trauma-informed approach, and helps educators apply it in their classes.
Learning Objectives:
Describe three strategies that can be used to create a safe and supportive learning environment for teaching sex education.
Describe three types of trauma.
Identify a range of traumatic experiences common to youth.
List three impacts of trauma.
List the six components of a trauma-informed approach.
