In the afternoon session, HCESC Consultant Jason Haap will share an introduction to trauma (including ACE's as well as trauma's impact on the brain and central nervous system) is packaged through the lens of systems-level change. Explore how trauma may indicate a need for radical revision to a school's or district's processes and procedures. In short, this session provides a basis for building a 'trauma-informed' system.
