SEL Academy: SEL IV – Responding to Trauma and Reactivity

Prerequisites: Foundations in SEL, Afterschool professionals from a PSELI pilot school, Prime Time Registry ID


Effectively dealing with trauma and managing the stressors of everyday life are foundational social and emotional skills. In this training, we will explore stressors and the ways humans typically react to both big and mundane life events that may get in the way of our well-being and relationships. Participants are encouraged to increase awareness of their reactions as the first step to intentionally practice self-care, and to track how this impacts their interactions with adults and youth at work. Participants will also learn how to notice and manage reactivity both in and out of the Afternoon Meeting setting using a proactive approach to discipline.


Training Objectives

Participants will

  1. Identify signs of personal stress, trauma and reactivity.
  2. Explore tools to increase self-regulation and stress management.
  3. Practice using circle protocol for restorative discussions.
  4. Apply a positive approach to discipline in an Afternoon Meeting and during program time.
