Building Trauma Aware and Caring Schools in Support of African Immigrants, Refugees, and Undocumented Students 


He who learns teaches. ~ Ethiopian proverb 

Workshop Overview


An African Immigrant, Refugee and Undocumented school student’s experience of complex trauma (e.g. physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse, serious neglect, violence, etc.) can have a serious impact on school attendance, behaviors, engagement and learning experiences which can negatively impact their educational and life outcomes. Worrying behaviors can also have a significant impact on the well-being, efficacy, and retention of teachers and other educators. Consequently, it is highly imperative to understand the role of trauma in behavioral, social, and cognitive problems and in creating a school environment where African Immigrants, Refugees, and Undocumented Students affected by trauma can succeed.

This workshop is designed to help teachers, school social workers, counselors, school librarians, school nurses, volunteers, agencies and service providers working with immigrants, refugees, and undocumented students in the school system to recognize and respond appropriately to trauma so that the school system will not re-traumatize them. Information about available resources and community services/supports will be provided.
