Our expert panelists will share stories, models, and resources for implementing effective, compassionate, trauma-sensitive practices at all levels in public school systems, from whole-district initiatives to classroom-based strategies. You’ll take away models, resources, and inspiration to help you start or grow a trauma-sensitive program in own district, school, or classroom.

Mary Crnobori, coordinator of Trauma-Informed Schools for the 169-school Metro Nashville Public School District, will share how she is working at the district level to raise awareness of childhood and intergenerational trauma, using a collective impact framework to promote system-wide change and implementation of school-wide trauma-sensitive practices, and collaborate with police and other community agencies to support students experiencing traumatic events. Watch Mary Crnobori at TEDx Vanderbilt University: Why All Schools Should be Trauma Informed.

Khayree Bey, 2019 SHAPE Delaware’s Health Teacher of the Year, will share how he is implementing an equity-based trauma-informed approach in his classroom based on the art of mindfulness, Kemetic yoga and other self-care practices, and how he is teaching other teachers, community and staff to do the same. Khayree serves on Colonial School District’s Educators of Color committee which focuses on equity and the underrepresented population in teaching by recruiting, assisting, and maintaining educators of color. Watch Khayree Bey on Colonial School District’s October edition of “Keeping up with Colonial”.

Riane Eisler, founder of the Center for Partnership Studies and author of Nurturing Our Humanity: How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future, will explain how the implementation of trauma-sensitive practices in schools is an essential lever for the systemic cultural shift away from relationships of domination and toward relations of partnership.
