“I’m a Teacher, not a Therapist!” – How many times have we heard these words ring out in a team meeting around a student struggling with impacts of trauma, neurodiversity, attachment issues, or other causes of chronic challenging behavior? 


The real statements underlying these words are often “I haven’t been trained in mental health practices. I don’t have the skills I need to respond to this child’s needs! ... and I’m afraid I’ll look like a failure!” or “I haven’t been trained in mental health practices; how can I know how to respond to a mind and body that’s in constant distress?” Educators NEED and DESERVE a response; a response that acknowledges the legitimate concerns and fears that lay beneath these words – “I’m a Teacher, not a Therapist!”. This session is designed to do just that.
