Webinar Description

The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting safer-at-home orders have stopped the way schools, and society at large, function. This abrupt change has left students, parents, and staff to grapple with increased stress, uncertainty, and the need for skills to manage what is increasingly being understood as a collective trauma experience.

Alliance member Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services in Pasadena, California, offers a training and consultation program on the tools that will be essential to supporting the needs of all students and staff during and after the pandemic. Social-emotional learning (SEL), self-care, workplace resilience, and trauma-informed classrooms are the building blocks for helping students, caregivers, and staff develop and sustain the skills needed to ensure a healthy transition to a changed school environment.

During this webinar, team members from Hathaway-Sycamores will share an overview of this new training series. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the training and will learn how they can bring this training series to their community.
