Dear Community Members,Our free webinar and follow up discussion about trauma informed practice is just a bit more than a week away! If you can attend we look forward to seeing you. Please spread the word about this opportunity! We are able to put this workshop on thanks to funds from Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Network.
Getting educated about what trauma is, how it impacts us, and how we respond to it can help you improve your ability to respond in human-centered and supportive ways that don't add to a person's trauma. Week 1 we'll get the basics. Then after a week of reflection, we'll have the chance to participate in a follow up group discussion.
