FREE Webinar -- October 27,  2014 3:00 - 4:30 PM EST

As a member of the IDEA Partnership, SSWAA invites you to participate in a FREE Webinar: Promoting a Trauma Informed Learning Environment in Schools hosted by the IDEA Partnership, Education: An Essential Component of System of Care Practice Group (National CoP on School Behavioral Health), Center for School Mental Health, and the National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health on October 27, 2014 from 3:00 – 4:30 PM Eastern Time.

Mariola Rosser,  from the IDEA Partnership notes: "We now know that trauma exposure affects many children and we know the impact of that exposure may result in interference with a child’s ability to learn. Teachers, administrators, and other school and community personnel in partnership with families can make a difference in creating a “trauma informed” learning environment so that children are more able to focus and take advantage of the academic opportunities. This webinar will explore a variety of resources including video clips of educators and providers sharing their expertise on creating trauma-informed schools by training staff, partnering with mental health services, and creating a safe environment.


Sherry Peters is currently a Senior Policy Associate at Georgetown University’s National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health where she served as the Director of the Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) Waiver Initiative from 2010 until the waiver ended in September of 2014. Sherry worked in Pennsylvania for 18 years on statewide children’s mental health policy and program development. In her early career she worked as a therapist in residential and community settings in Pennsylvania and New York. In addition, she held a national position in Chicago developing behavioral health resources for faith-based entities.
