2017 Reaching the Wounded Student Conference


Join us for the 2017 Reaching the Wounded Student Conference: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Helping Youth Beyond At-Risk presented by the National Dropout Prevention Center/Network and Hope 4 The Wounded, LLC Educational Seminars.  The conference is the perfect staff development event for school/district administrators, teachers, counselors, community and faith-based youth practitioners.

Many young people today carry wounds with them as they head out to school each day, interact with friends and family, and experience life in their communities.  These wounds are the result of trauma, many times experienced in the form of poverty, abuse, violence, loss, and family dysfunction.  Research shows that this trauma has a direct effect on cognitive function, emotional health, and interpersonal capacity.  Educators, counselors, administrators, and youth practitioners can implement trauma-informed policies and approaches to their work that not only move wounded youth toward healing, but have a positive effect on overall student achievement and performance.
