Trauma-Informed College Readiness
Schools are increasingly trauma-informed: they work hard to create a stable environment, with a welcoming, inclusive culture and clear feedback from adults.
The problem: the college process is characterized by rejections and acceptances, a changing environment, and mysterious processes, the precise opposite of the “trauma-informed” environment. This problem ends up hurting the school culture, as the college process begins early.
In this course, you will learn how to create a college process that enhances your school’s culture; a trauma-informed college process is a more inclusive process.
What you will learn:
• A better way for students to conduct research into college and careers.
• How to build a long-term plan so that college serves the goals of the student (rather than college being the goal).
• A clear (and tested), six-step process that will get every student moving towards the future of their choice.
• Research-backed ways to get students writing so that applications become simple.
How the course is taught:
• Instructor-led or self-paced online course
• 6 Weeks or 3 Months access
• 24 course hours/3 continuing education credits
