Join us Monday, August 6th for a webinar on creating a trauma-informed school.

In Nashville, TN, 60% of children have had an adverse childhood experience. The city is home to Fall-Hamilton Elementary, a school in the center of a changing neighborhood in which many students are being displaced.

To better support the entire community at Fall-Hamilton Elementary School, Principal Mathew Portell and his team took proactive steps to ensure the needs of students and teachers were being met. This webinar will highlight the school’s experience in becoming trauma informed. Hear directly from Principal Portell as he outlines the foundation of this approach:

  • Understanding how the brain works
  • Understanding the impact of trauma
  • Utilizing trauma informed approaches
  • De-escalating crisis situations
