  • Trauma-informed strategies to reduce acting out behavior in students with ODD, ADHD, Emotional Dysregulation & Disruptive Behavior Disorder
  • Strategies to improve engagement, compliance, relationship building and stress tolerance
  • Improve educational outcomes with specific trauma informed assessments & techniques
  • Implement brain-based interventions
  • Positive alternatives for your most challenging students

As an educator, you are expected to teach and engage children—even those with the most challenging behaviors. These are the students that no matter what you try, you just can’t reach them. Like the boy with disruptive behaviors that keep him sitting in the principal’s office. Or the student that struggles to focus and complete assignments. What about the girl who is completely withdrawn? Is she even more challenging than the boy with the aggressive outbursts?

If your current interventions are not reducing these challenging behaviors, then you need to attend this program! Join leading education expert Robert Hull, as he teaches you evidence-based trauma-informed education strategies that will reduce the achievement gap, decrease referrals for highly restrictive special education programs, as well as drastically improve:

  • Emotional functioning
  • Acting out behaviors
  • Aggressive behaviors
  • Relationships
  • Student engagement

Using a trauma-informed approach will create an affiliation between teacher, student and family member that leads them to all work together for success rather than constantly being in conflict.

It’s a revolution in education that will help you connect with your most challenging students!



This online program is worth 5.75 hours CPD.
