Trauma Sensitive Schools, the New Jersey State Bar Foundation’s (NJSBF) newest workshop for educators, was launched in August of 2021 and is focusing initially on returning to in-person learning after over a year of remote learning for most students and teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unaddressed trauma can lead to violence, and in turn, providing support for students who have experienced trauma can prevent violence and create stronger communities. While focusing on trauma in the context of returning to school after remote learning, this workshop defines trauma, gives examples of how it can manifest in the classroom and school building, and offers practical tips on how educators can incorporate a trauma-sensitive lens into their teaching style. NJSBF understands that this has been a trying year for educators, students, and families and we hope this workshop provides needed support with the transition back to full-time in-person learning.

The workshop is free and will take place on Zoom on Sept. 20 from 9am to noon and again on Sept. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon. Visit to register.
