About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for
primary and secondary educators.

Trauma-aware teaching is growing across the education community. Teachers are increasingly aware that there are new approaches being developed to identify and support students who have experienced trauma. In this session, TLN has gathered together  teachers who have implemented trauma-aware teaching in their workplace. The panelists will discuss the challenges and rewards that have come with educating teachers and staff about these new practices.
The content of this session builds on TLN Journal Vol. 26 No. 2 Trauma Aware Teaching.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online.  Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
