Testimonials from Teachers
This presentation helped me as an educator better understand why my students act the way that they do. It allowed me to think more analytically about the matter and not have such an emotional response when a negative behavior occurred. In addition, I am now able to identify traumatic elements within my students earlier and develop positive relationships with them in order to more effectively help them when they have an overwhelming feeling. -Elizabeth Rustemeyer, 7th grade teacher at Thomas Jefferson Middle School.
The training was great! It complements the material I use to train our staff here at the Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson City. Josh’s presentation style is easy to listen to and follow along with. I could see and hear the passion he has for this important topic. You can tell he really wants to share this information with others for the good of all children. -Joy Ledbetter Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson City
As a School Counselor, I was able to take away many useful ideas learned from the Trauma Program. The program helps you to really consider the whole child and not just label him or her. Instead of focusing on “what is wrong with this child”, you begin to focus on “what happened to this child.” – Sara Garner licensed school counselor St. Peter School.
