More Calm, Less Chaos: Supporting House Bill 318 Through Creating Integrated SEL/
Trauma Informed Classrooms. 
Participants will gain an understanding of what a classroom can look
like when trauma-informed and integrated social emotional learning practices are in place — much more
calm and much less chaos! Learn how stress, trauma and ACES affect learning, emotional regulation, and behavior. Research shows that educators are in a prime position to heal brains and build resilience in
children. This session will provide an introduction to brain-based interventions that will accomplish this and can be implemented the next day. Focus will be on how we can regulate before we educate and connect before we correct. Our ultimate goal is accessing our learning brains so that together we can decrease stress, build strong social emotional and academic skills, and increase positive behavior through a safe and supportive learning environment.
