I want to remind you about the Chester County Coalition for Public Education’s Trauma Impact on Education Workshop set for this Saturday morning, April 14 at Franklin Commons in Phoenixville.
Emotional and psychological trauma impacts children across all demographics and there is no doubt that it can have a negative and devastating impact on our public schools. This interactive workshop will offer community leaders and those who work with children helpful insight on the issue, including recognizing traumatized or troubled students, and fostering healing, recovery and growth while restoring focus and stability to the learning environment.
Act 48 credits will be available for educators and CEU credits will be available to social workers who attend this event.
The event is free and open to the public. It will run from 8 a.m. to noon. Continental breakfast at the event is by reservation only, so please register today at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/695PD96 if you plan to arrive at 8 a.m. You are welcome to attend the workshop from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. if you do not care to join us for the breakfast portion. Franklin Commons is located at 400 Franklin Avenue, Phoenixville.
I hope to see you there.
