Several national studies (Frazier, 2016; Smyth, 2008; Winterman, 2017) reveal that the majority of college students have exposure to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) (66%) and exposure to at least one major traumatic event (89%). Increasingly, students report struggles with anxiety (61%) and depression (41%). In this session, participants will learn the brain science behind ACEs and ways toxic stress makes it difficult for students to learn. Participants will learn concrete ways to bring trauma-aware approaches to bear on their own practices with the goal of increasing students’ academic resilience.
