experience to an event
Learning Without Borders
12:27:18
Typing as you said it
Linnea Schluessler
12:27:58
I would say trauma is the response to the event.
Liz Campbell
12:35:15
Trauma is the invisible backpack
Learning Without Borders
12:36:13
Limbic system is like our alarm system in the house
Linnea Schluessler
12:37:40
I feel like trauma that is in remission and manageable is something that can fit in a backpack. Someone currently suffering from PTSD might be navigating constant flight or flight and constant pervasive memory flashbacks that permeate every part aspect of life.
Learning Without Borders
12:38:59
I think the emphasis on connection and creating safety in the relationship and environment
Liza Loop
12:39:36
I’m finding the multi-year threat of fire near my home in northern California traumatic in a way that is a slow drain on my energy.
Guilhem LS
12:39:54
Question (that might be difficult to answer generally) : How can you tell if a student is in flight, fight or freeze mode and is there a general way to help? Thank you, Peter
Liz Campbell
12:41:00
Talking to a stranger sort of alleviates the fear of judgement
Linnea Schluessler
12:41:04
Way easier to tell a stranger imo!
Jimmy
12:41:23
The thing with strangers is that you can escape them if you want to.
Jimmy
12:41:31
That can provide a sense of safety
Heather MacTaggart
12:41:46
@jimmy good point
Taryn Helper
12:42:13
In my experience, if a child is in a safe emotional environment where they feel respected,heard and connected- it comes out naturally, eventually. Regardless if the person is trained in psychology or not.
Linnea Schluessler
12:42:34
Fatigue is common in chronic fatigue. Along with impaired memory, insomnia, and overreaction.
Linnea Schluessler
12:42:44
*chronic trauma
Learning Without Borders
12:43:56
MNRI…works on primitive reflexes
Taryn Helper
12:43:56
After years of every therapy under the sun, SDE was what saved my traumatized family.
Learning Without Borders
12:45:00
EMDR….movement
Learning Without Borders
12:45:05
Eye movment
Shana Frank
12:45:59
How can adults who work with young people lessen the likelihood of triggering their students’ past traumas if they don’t know the details of their history or their triggers?
Su Verri
12:46:33
I feel the same @Taryn. It was a long search process to me and my Family and it was a deep transformation that never ends. SDE is therapeutic.
Jimmy
12:46:39
@Taryn I'm glad you found SDE!
Jimmy
12:46:51
I agree, it's therapeutic!
Derek Sturm
12:47:11
Don't doubt the hands!
Dileepa Manawadu
12:47:14
@Taryn with you on that. I think trust is an important “investment “ so children can reach out. It can be tough.
Liza Loop
12:47:24
Book recommendation: Mindsight by Daniel J. Siegel
Dee H
12:47:44
Bodywork can also be physical labour, making things by hand, woodworking- which is getting neglected in schools in the rush to make things "technological" or academic. It really does not serve kids to neglect it. Especially boys who don't have options or role models outside of the school.
Liz Campbell
12:47:59
@Liza…great book and I actually contacted him and he spoke to me for an hour about a student
Liz Campbell
12:49:26
There is going to be a lot of traumatized kids in September trying to negotiate a return to school
Su Verri
12:49:38
when we practice authentic communication in spaces that offer welcome for true expression. we have the possibility to reframe the trauma
Heather MacTaggart
12:49:58
If anyone is working with adult learners (particularly those, adults or teens, who are not where they want to be in life) here is a link to trauma informed, strength based workshops and facilitator training. www.changeitup.ca
Monica Brase
12:50:02
@Liz...I agree.
Learning Without Borders
12:51:05
@ Heather. Kathy Magnusson and I will be doing a workshop on Building Resilience through Strength Based learning
Learning Without Borders
12:52:11
On Saturday :-)
Linnea Schluessler
12:52:28
As of the last APA review the most strongly recommended treatments for PTSD are CBT/CT, CPT (12 session protocol), and Prolonged Exposure therapy which involves self-calming techniques. In my experience yoga is the most helpful as it teaches breathwork, mindfulness, and body movement. People can engage in one or multiple ways and more recent studies show that the integration of multiple techniques is the best practice.
Zoom user Cindy Fadel
12:52:31
We have used Africa Drumming
Derek Sturm
12:52:42
Apes together strong
Tracy Mansolillo
12:52:54
Traditional schools are ill-equipped to help kids with trauma which further alienates the child
Zoom user Cindy Fadel
12:53:18
Drumming for us was better than yoga
Penny Camps
12:53:24
As useful as tools like EFT and EMDR are …Our being fully present with respectful kindness is perhaps the most vital contradiction to trauma that’s relational based
Linnea Schluessler
12:53:37
I use my drum regularly in yoga.
Liz Campbell
12:53:43
@Tracy, yes and I am very concerned about this.
Dileepa Manawadu
12:55:32
Can there be a situation that 6-8 hrs of “on-line classrooms” can actually be causing trauma (Many parents with children on online classes these days say there children has changed and has difficulties “coping” and I wonder whether it is more than that and whether it has in fact become trauma. Is there any research of Pandemic Online schooling and trauma?
Liz Campbell
12:56:23
@Dileepa, not that I know of but my experience and instinct say YES!
Rivka
12:56:45
@liz and @dileepa, I agree!
Shana Frank
12:57:32
This session needed to be longer!
Liz Campbell
12:58:04
Book recommendations: The Body Keeps the Score and Getting Past Your Traumaor anything by Gabor Mate
Liza Loop
12:58:05
Does anyone else think that we have raised the bar on our expectation of safety and low trauma environments as compared with 50 to 100 years ago? While we deal with some pretty horrible situations I think we’re seeing slow positive progress.
Liza Loop
12:58:44
Book Recommendation: For Your Own Good by Alice Miller. Scary but useful theory.
Tracy Mansolillo
12:58:59
This is a critical topic that requires more discussion
Learning Without Borders
12:59:05
@Liz….Just went to a Trauma Summit that Gabor hosted..
Erynn Albert
12:59:08
Many turn to homeschooling, which relieves some of the cause of trauma but they bring it with them. And homeschool mentor/teachers/ parents are not always ready to accomodate. But because the homeschool settings and teachers are not under pressure to show “outcomes”, individualization and accommodation, is so much easier. The ability to work together without bureaucracy. Taking what is and being where we are and making the moment as good as it can be. Leading to a better next moment.

Great book for Adults: Grounded by Claire Wilson
Dileepa Manawadu
13:00:31
@Liza I see it more like withholding experience and disempowerment through raising crazy levels of Health and Safety measures. Perhaps it has got to do with urbanisation and how our physical infrastructure, and socio-emotional relationships have evolved. But I do think, we are over protective and thereby has become disempo
