#SaludTues Tweetchat 6/19: Actions to Create More Trauma-Sensitive Schools and Communities


Share On Social!

To become a productive adult, a child needs more than great academic experiences.

Social and emotional learning experiences, for example, can instill responsibility, integrity, and justice in our youngest children.

Schools, communities and healthcare professionals play a big role in addressing trauma and stimulating social and emotional development, which requires an understanding of how childhood trauma impacts kids’ brains, bodies, and behavior.

We at Salud America! created an Action Pack to help your school take steps to become more trauma-informed/sensitive to reduce absenteeism and misconduct and help students become healthy, productive members of society.

Let’s use #SaludTues on June 19, 2018, to see Action Pack and tweet how schools can become trauma-informed to improve Latino and all kids’ health.
