Support for Building Healthy Teaching & Learning Environments

We are developing our SEL program to provide educators with:

  • lessons designed to enhance students’ social and emotional competence
  • teaching practices such as cooperative learning and project-based learning, which promote SEL
  • integration of SEL and academic curriculum
  • helping schools build a culture conducive to learning


Trauma-Informed Strategies for Educators (part 2)
Cortland County Teacher Center
Tuesday, January TBD

In a trauma-informed school, staff should be encouraged to practice self-care along with other strategies to guard against or heal from the effects of secondary traumatic stress. The facilitator will provide information to help educators be alert to the signs of secondary traumatic stress in themselves, their coworkers and students. She will also provide links to apps and resources. Additionally, participants will review and discuss the ASCD book, Fostering Resilient Learners. This book is designed to help cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. Participants will receive a hard copy of: Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom. Presentation, Book Study and Discussion Group (part 1/2) Facilitator: KAREN DUDGEN, LCSW - COUNSELOR
