Leadership Symposium - Restoring Connections: Can C.A.R.E be the Cure for Tackling Trauma?

Denver, CO June 14, 2022 | Olympia, WA June 15, 2022

Tackling trauma was a concern before the pandemic, and it has only escalated. So many members of the school community are struggling and, as a leader, meeting these needs can seem daunting.  Using C.A.R.E. strategies (Connection, Awareness, Response, and Evolution) can help leaders move their school community from just surviving to thriving as we begin the next school year. This symposium will help develop skills and discover solutions to create campuses and classrooms that are catalysts for change!

  • Explore specific strategies for leaders to restore connections within the school community and support post-traumatic growth
  • Learn how Trauma-Informed designs can help your schools become safe places for students
  • Discover solutions to help your school become trauma ready without adding more trauma

Surviving the Storm: Leading Through Post-Traumatic Growth

A global pandemic. Social unrest. Economic instability. American society is going through unprecedented disruptions that reverberate through every home and every institution. Isolation and anxiety have bred distrust and division. In many places, schools are a lightning rod for rage that threatens to tear our communities apart. Surviving the Storm is essential reading for educators and administrators traumatized by the overwhelming demands placed on them at this strategic crossroads in our history. Through their research, LindaGail Walker, in collaboration with Rex Miller, offers insight into the leader’s journey from disillusionment and despair to possibilities and hope. Leaders will find Surviving the Storm a comprehensive guide for their journey to post-traumatic recovery and growth toward a future of renewed confidence, healthy community, and educational excellence.
