Trauma-Sensitive Schools
Published by Alison Lemanski on February 9, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

Research has tied the stressors and traumatic experiences that some youth suffer to emotional, behavioral, and even physical issues that manifest in their everyday lives. Some of these children are our students. We become a part of the healing process when we (educators) partner with parents, acknowledge the challenges these students face, and collectively make positive, supportive, and genuine connections with them. Parents, employees and community members are invited to attend the upcoming sessions.

SESSION 1
CCS Student Services is hosting a viewing of the film, Resilience, on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at 6 p.m., at Trinity United Methodist Church, 6974 Raeford Road, Fayetteville, NC 28304. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

The one-hour documentary delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress and disrupt cycles of violence, addiction, and disease.

SESSION 2
CCS Student Services is hosting a viewing of the film, Paper Tigers, on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at 6 p.m., at the Special Operations Museum Theater, 100 Bragg Blvd., Fayetteville, NC 28301. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence, and disease that affect families.
