The events of the past year have resulted in a rising awareness of the impact of community trauma, and many ABE teachers are searching for the best ways to support their students. This two-part training will provide ABE teachers with a series of tools to address difficult topics in the classroom. The first part of the training will be led by Lucille Rosario, faculty member at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work and school social worker at Intermediate District 287, where she is part of the trauma leadership team. In this webinar, participants will learn how to create a classroom environment that provides a containing space for responding to community trauma and stressors, proactive measures and trauma-informed strategies for addressing shared community trauma when it happens, and strategies for recognizing and responding to compassion fatigue without inadvertently causing additional harm.

Lucille Rosario, MSW, LICSW, has over 15 years of experience in leadership and direct practice in the social work field. Lucille received her Bachelors in Social Work from St. Olaf College and her Masters of Social Work from Columbia University in New York City. Lucille has previously run programs addressing youth development, healthy relationships, family violence, parenting, trauma, mental illness, and nutrition in Mexico, South Bronx, Minnesota. Lucille is currently a School Social Worker at a high school special education program in Brooklyn Park where she is part of their trauma leadership team, Equity Committee and has participated in the year of learning with Resmaa Menakem, along with a number of other district-wide projects focused on equity and trauma-informed teaching in schools. Lucille is also a community faculty member at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work, and volunteers her time supporting refugees and helping professionals at the United States/Mexico border.

The second part of the training (Thursday, May 27, 2021) will consist of small group discussions led by ABE teachers that will focus on adapting the practices for adult classrooms to better serve ABE learners of all backgrounds and levels. If you can only make it to this one, please review the Part 1 recording prior to the 27th.
