Working with Black and Latino Male Students who have Experienced Trauma
*VIDEO NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS SESSION*
This interactive session will give 8 factors that affect Black and Latino Male students who have experienced trauma and strategies of how to educate them. According to the Children's Defense Fund, 1 in 3 Black Males and 1 in 6 Latino Males will spend time in prison. These young men are the most suspended, expelled, incarcerated and victims of homicide. Children who have been exposed to trauma in the first 3 years of life have a 76% likelihood of delayed language, emotional and brain development and 3 times more likely to be an alcoholic or experience depression. This session will give solutions to helping these students become success stories, not victims. I was one of those students. Educators will receive strategies for working with Black and Latino Males who have experienced trauma they can use right away. Self-Care solutions will be discussed in addition to Secondary Traumatic Stress that effects educators.
