Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. feel more comfortable and confident in implementing trauma-informed techniques in school.
  2. learn what healthy relationships and a safe environment look like in a school environment.
  3. better support their students and collaborate with colleagues (administration, teachers, etc.) on how to improve a child’s educational experience.


This poster will examine recent literature regarding the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the importance of positive relationships with school personnel. Drawing from positive psychology and trauma-informed practices, the presentation will address approaches to understand students’ ACEs and foster healthy relationships in schools. Specific roles of school psychologists within the NASP Practice Model (2020) will be discussed, including screening, consultation, and collaboration.
