Please join us for three one-day conferences being offered around the state in June that concentrate on meeting the needs of the whole child.

When students are healthy, safe, supported, engaged and challenged, they are then able to learn to the best of their ability. Becoming “trauma-informed” is one key aspect of creating such learning environments.

This conference explores the myriad ways schools, health providers and communities can partner to provide students with primary care resources, encourage resiliency in the classroom and life, make our discipline and justice systems more humane, fully engage parents in their child’s education, and ultimately provide the best possible conditions for learning to occur.

These conferences are sponsored by the Illinois Education Association and the Partnership for Resilience. Choose the date and location that works best for you:
