About This Event

When we put youth voice at the center of our classrooms, transformative things can happen—rich discussions unfold, participation increases, and students take a more active role in their own learning. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to see and hear what can happen when student voices are placed at the heart of social-emotional learning (SEL) instruction. Participants learn how to use Youth Communication’s uniquely relevant teen-written stories to generate discussion of SEL skills, engage in group discussion, and pair activities that support active listening and student engagement.

About This Event

Educators frequently work with students and families who have been exposed to trauma in their lives; in some cases, multiple traumas. As you teach, support, and develop relationships with your students, you learn about their lives, often revealing intimate details about their trauma experiences. Through time, this ongoing exposure to students’ traumas can lead to compassion fatigue or even educator burnout. It is critical to learn about the signs and effects of vicarious trauma. Additionally, this webinar will share the importance of establishing a self-care routine.

About This Event

Hoosier youth are significantly more likely to consider or attempt suicide than their peers nationally and Indiana faces significant disparities in youth suicide among vulnerable groups. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24 and the 4th leading cause of death for youth ages 5-14.

Join us as we look at what schools and communities are doing to address this difficult issue and gain understanding on prevention and intervention as a continuum of practice. Along with some practitioners, we will be joined by Jeff Wittman from the Indiana Department of Education who serves as the School Social Work & Foster Youth Specialist and Laurie Gerdt from Community Health Network serving as Program Manager for the Zero Suicides for Indiana Youth.

Participants will hear about reframing for prevention as a means to address youth risk behaviors and also identify exemplars of implementation in school-based and community-based settings.
