Effective Strategies for Social Workers to Talk to School Staff About Trauma


Description: During this webinar participants will be instructed by a former school social

worker and former elementary school teacher who became a principal. The webinar will

provide an overview of research on the effects of childhood trauma on the brain and how this

manifests in classroom behavior. Additionally, the webinar will explore ways school social

workers can effectively convey this information to school staff.


Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to identify how systems theory can be used to change the

climate of a school by sharing trauma-sensitive strategies with teachers.

2. Participants will understand how childhood trauma creates neurological changes in the

developing brain.

3. Participants will learn four real-world strategies to use when explaining trauma-sensitive

topics to teachers.


Social Work Theories to include: Overarching Strength-Based Framework, System Theory,

Cognitive Theory, Behavior Theory, Problem Solving


Presented by Lori Madrid, MSW, LCSW, and Dr. Bennett MacKinney
