WILL A TRAINING ON CHILDHOOD TRAUMA AND ITS EFFECTS BE USEFUL TO TEACHERS AND 1:1 AIDS.
Kathyrn Conley Wehrmann
About 35 million children in the United States are living with emotional and psychological trauma according to the National Survey of Children's Health (2013). Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience, because of this; the causes of trauma vary significantly, as well as the signs and symptoms. Teachers are on the frontline when it comes to seeing the impact of trauma and the needs of students. Children enter school with a range of needs, such as educational, health, physical, and social/emotional. This project will use an explanatory mixed method research design. This research aims to discover whether or not an in-service training on trauma will increase teacher's knowledge at a private day school for children with behavioral and learning disabilities. A quantitative pre and posttest will be given to participants to gauge their understanding of the impacts of trauma and how it affect behavior and education. A training satisfaction survey will be administered that will allow for participants to evaluate the training and to add additional comments.
