Episode 24: Matt & Jerry go to Washington

This episode finds Matt and Jerry in Washington D.C. attending and presenting at the 1st National Trauma-Sensitive Schools Conference put on by our friends at the Attachment & Trauma Network. For this podcast, we share what we have learned at the conference and reflections on our presentation on Emotional Regulation and Behaviors. Also, we discuss the powerful experience of being at a conference talking about schools and trauma just days after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting.

Discussion Questions:

  • How would trauma-sensitive schools positively benefit your community, those attending, and those that access your services (if you do not work in schools)?
  • Can you identify any advocacy you can do to school administrators or policymakers to support adoptions of trauma-sensitive schools in your community?
  • How do you see the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting and the advocacy of that school’s students affecting your own emotional state, the conversations in your community, and can you help lead those conversations to help create safer schools and communities?
