  • PMD: 4,7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 10: Health and Well-Being

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify the risk predictors of traumatic stress symptoms in youth to enhance safe and supported learning.
  2. explain how risk factors affect youth with type 1 diabetes.
  3. analyze the association of health factors and school performance to posttraumatic stress.


Adverse childhood experiences has been a commonly explored topic in research. However, most studies that have examined risk factors that have fallen short because they have neglected to incorporate or consider school-related contributors, health components, and demographics that influence traumatic stress symptoms and its related symptoms in the population of youth with type 1 diabetes. Therefore, this study will analyze what predictors will influence the risk of this sample being diagnosed with traumatic stress symptoms.
