School counselors, we are in the midst of an unusual time that is quickly evolving. How can we best meet the needs of our students and schools? Attend this session to learn how school counselors can use a MTSS-lens when considering going back to school in the fall of 2020. What can you do to serve all (Tier 1), some (Tier 2), and few (Tier 3) students?

The STAT curriculum is designed to help you understand Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS) and provide ways to mitigate its effects through the use of self-care techniques and a variety of helpful resources.
STAT (Support for Teachers Affected by Trauma) is a five-module, self-paced course geared toward pre-K thru grade 12 teachers and school administrators. Although the course is primarily designed to be used by individuals, it can also be implemented at the whole school and/or district level.
During this difficult time, we are offering our Parenting Online class for free. Due to the great response we have extended the offer until May 15. It's our way of supporting families as they go through this unprecedented crisis.
Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools teaches school professionals how to create trauma-informed schools and classrooms. The training focuses on resilience, exploring the core values and beliefs of educators and places an emphasis on understanding how trauma impacts children and their school experience. Lastly, proactive strategies such as fostering connections, prioritizing social and emotional skills, establishing safety, and promoting play are presented. This course provides detailed information and concrete actions that answer not just the “why” but also the “how” to create the best classroom and school supports for traumatized students and the school professionals who serve them.
This course covers the first 6 steps of the 10 Steps to Create a Trauma-Informed Resilient School (if you have taken the previous version of the course: Trauma-Informed Schools)

ASCA Annual Conference June 27-30, 2020 now @home
Each year, we look forward to bringing the school counseling community together at the ASCA Annual Conference. But this year, based on decisions by the state of Washington regarding large gatherings – and our desire to keep members safe – we will transform the ASCA Annual Conference into an online experience. Even though we can’t gather in Seattle this year as we had planned, we can all still be together. ASCA is excited to announce ASCA@Home, an all-new online educational experience. ASCA@Home, June 29–July 2, will offer keynote speakers, almost 90 breakout sessions and special events that will put the “social” back in social distancing.
SCALI: Sept. 13-15, 2020
Join your fellow Tennessee School Counselors as we hear from some incredible speakers such as Gerry Brooks and Julia Cook.
Register here. Join TSCA to be inspired, empowered and embraced!
