Rural Behavioral Health Webinar Series 2015

 Description: Exposure to trauma and violence contributes to unhealthy environments and adversely impacts learning and educational outcomes for children and youth. Efforts to address the social/emotional and education needs of these students require strategies that are trauma informed. Additionally these strategies must take into account child development, the full range of child traumatic experiences and chronic stress as significant contributors to poor educational outcomes for some students. This webinar will feature a SAMHSA Safe Schools/Health Students grantee from the Menominee Indian School District (MISD) working to implement trauma informed approaches to address the learning and behavioral needs of students in the rural tribal community. 

The webinar will be facilitated by: Stephanie Autumn, MA, Senior TA Consultant, American Institutes for Research (AIR) 

Presenters: Wendell Waukau, Superintendent of Schools for the Menominee Indian School District (MISD) in Keshena, WI 

Facilitator: Stephanie Autumn, MA, Senior TA Consultant, American Institutes for Research (AIR)
