The For All Seasons clinical team offers specialized training for teachers and school administrators in a workshop entitled – Trauma-Informed Schools. Trauma impacts the lives of many students from all backgrounds and all grade levels. Research shows that two-thirds of children reported at least one traumatic event by the age of 16. Students impacted by trauma may display symptoms including, inability to focus, poor social skills, depression, anxiety, and withdrawal.
The Trauma-Informed Schools training provides information to school staff about the common signs and symptoms of trauma in children. Participants learn how to approach children who experience trauma from the perspective of, “What happened to you?” rather than, “What is wrong with you?”
Strategies and ways to help children build the necessary skills to counteract stress are also reviewed in training. A variety of Mid-shore schools have already completed training and are working to better support their most vulnerable population of students.
Data shows that the health and wellness of children are impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences, also known as ACEs. There is a direct correlation between the number of ACEs an individual has and his or her success and well-being as an adult. ACEs affect everyone – from all backgrounds and all communities. For All Seasons provides certified training to help families and organizations not only learn the risk and outcomes of ACEs, but also look to solutions of resilience.
Trainings are offered across the five Mid-Shore Counties: Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Talbot, and Queen Anne’s. For more information or to schedule an ACEs training session at your organization or at an event, contact:

Dare to Lead™ Initiative
For All Seasons leadership has received facilitator certification in Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™ program. Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers. According to Brown, “Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage.”
Through this leadership training, the entire For All Seasons team is learning to lead from a place of courage and openness. In Brown’s work, she focuses on learning about shame and how there is a physiological response that can be stored in the body.
