Trauma Sensitive Classrooms
Trauma in the classroom; how can we respond to it? A trauma sensitive school is one in which all students feel safe, welcomed and supported. This session will help provide an understanding about the impact of traumatic experiences on students and their classroom behaviors. We will speak about strategies and approaches that can be used to mitigate this impact with the hopes of improving educational outcomes.

Central Alberta sexual assault support Center
The Central Alberta sexual assault support Center offers counseling for victims, victimizers and families of sexual assault. We also offer free programs to schools and the community that are age appropriate around the topics of safe and unsafe touches with the K to 4 program of No Secrets. The grade 5 to 8 program follows the same topic along with body boundaries and consent. The grade 9 to 12 program follows the outcomes of CALM and offers information around consent, healthy relationships and sexual assault. These are not sex education programs. They are body safety and life skills programs.

CANCELLED - The Effects of Domestic Violence on Children
Unfortunately, the speaker has had to cancel her session. If you’d like to find out more about this topic, you can email her at shelley.magnusson@ata.ab.ca.

For children, families are a source of learning and love. All too often, however, intimate partner violence can disrupt this family refuge on which children and teens rely for stability, support and nurture. Children’s exposure to domestic violence is much more common than generally believed.The potential consequences of abuse or exposure to violence as a child are also becoming increasingly evident. Children exposed to domestic violence are more likely to suffer from biological, social, emotional, and/or cognitive development problems than those who are not. In this session, teachers will learn to recognize the signs of vicarious trauma and receive information on supports available.

Recognizing the signs of abuse
The first step in helping children impacted by abuse or neglect is learning to recognize the signs. The presence of a single sign does not prove a child is actually being abused, but a closer look at the situation may be warranted when these signs appear repeatedly or in combination with behaviors.
