Professional Learning | Foundation Module B: Trauma Impacts on Learning and Behaviour 

Course outline

In this module we pick up where module A concludes, with the trauma recovery framework and goals. Participants will: 

  • Reflect on their experiences with students of refugee background through a focus on the traumatic impacts of refugee experiences upon students’ engagement, learning and wellbeing 
  • Explore causes and manifestations of students’ trauma reactions related to their refugee experiences 
  • Use case studies to help illustrate trauma reactions and collaborate with colleagues in breakout rooms around responding in the school context 
  • Understand their role in relation to student disclosures of traumatic experiences and supporting students 

It is recommended that participants book to complete modules A and B together.
