Poverty / Trauma Informed

Poverty and Trauma-Informed Education

The brain research is clear. Growing up in poverty or experiencing trauma will significantly affect a child’s behavior and academic performance, impacting their mindset for change and success.

A systemic approach for change involves a broad understanding of the myths and realities of poverty and trauma. This approach must include students, families, and community members in a long term solution.

We’re committed to finding ways to be part of that solution.

Bridging to Resilience conference
November 10 – 12, 2021

Marriott Kansas City
Overland Park, Kansas

Trauma is universal. It knows no socioeconomic boundaries, no race, and no geography. Poverty continues to overwhelm our families, our communities, and our institutions. But using the resilience-building framework allows us to heal trauma and solve poverty.

The Bridging to Resilience conference is about coming together with educators, social workers, health care professionals, religious communities, and other helping professionals to share conversation, ideas, strategies, tools, and connections to help build resilience and heal trauma in our own communities.

It's coming together!

Get all the registration and sessions details at the Bridging to Resilience website.
