In this Webinar, presenters provided an overview of trauma and retraumatization, discussed manifestations of trauma in students, explored a trauma-informed approach, and reviewed considerations for preparedness planning and how schools can address trauma in their emergency operations plans. The presentation concluded with a Question and Answer session and was followed by a Web Chat.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Supportive Schools and its REMS TA Center hosted this Webinar to provide schools with information on trauma-informed care for schools before, during, and after possible emergency events. While the live Webinar offered opportunities to respond to individual and unique questions from stakeholders and practitioners, the archived Webinar serves as a resource to help practitioners lead trauma-informed schools, address trauma in their overall preparedness efforts, and plan for the provision of trauma-informed care.
