Workshop 4 of 6 in the "Trauma-Informed, In School Sessions" Workshop Series (view series page for full details)

Counseling with Care: Trauma Informed School Counseling Practices
Trauma Informed Principle to Practice: Peer Support, Empowerment

Are you a school counselor, becoming a school counselor, or someone who teams/works with school counselors? Zeyda Garcia, founder of Healing Aguas Wellness Solutions and school counseling professor, joins our series to share how we can anchor and apply trauma-informed principles in school counseling practices, programs, and policies. In this workshop we will discuss a high-level overview of trauma, its impacts on students, and different strategies we can implement to support young people in counseling settings.


Utilizing trauma informed school counseling practices, we can support young people in regulating their own nervous system and support them in accessing their education. Join us as we reflect on our unique school and personal practices, in order to enhance our trauma-informed support of students.


Participants will walk away with practical tools they can use in sessions with students, families, and school-wide. Most importantly, and in Zeyda’s words, the workshop hopes to offer school counselors with “more creativity, courage and confidence in yourself as a counselor and a commitment to caring for yourself.”




Audience:  School counselors, school-based clinicians, counselor educators, counselor supervisors, mental health counselors, and anyone interested.
