Serving Cook County

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s historic study on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) revealed the powerful connection between childhood trauma and various physical, mental, emotional, and social challenges for children and adults. The series of four classes is designed to introduce teachers to the ways trauma affects the brain, stress the importance of self-care in preventing burnout among teachers, and provide teachers with tools they can utilize in building a compassionate classroom.
