To ensure academic success and improve the social and emotional well-being of children impacted by trauma.
What we do
The NC Center for Resilience and Learning is a whole school, whole child framework working with districts and schools across the state to create trauma-informed learning environments that are safer and more supportive for ALL kids.
How do we do this?
By working in schools to help create a school-wide culture shift so that instead of seeing a student and asking, “What is wrong with you?” we ask “What happened to you?” A culture shift begins by providing professional development and ongoing coaching with school teams that:
- Teaches and supports social/emotional or coping skills
- Builds a positive school climate with supportive relationships where kids feel physically and emotionally safe so they can focus on learning
