Learning Objectives

The Course offers a specific Trauma-Oriented (TO) preparation outlining the characteristics of "trauma-oriented schools" - which have long been a reality in the Anglo-Saxon school system - for the professionals involved in the school organization (curricular and support teachers, school managers and school psychologists). Specifically, through a multidisciplinary paradigm it structures activities and theoretical reflections on the promotion of the socio-emotional well-being of the children / young people and the professionals involved starting from an individual-organization systemic vision. The CNOP-MIUR School protocol (2020) and the Sostegni Decree (2021) recognize the involvement of the psychologist at school for psychological support and promotion of well-being in the school environment also in the recovery of skills and post-pandemic sociality.

The TO school psychologist integrates their professional skills with tools to promote emotional regulation, early interception of discomfort also from a preventive and early intervention perspective of a non-clinical nature. The school psychologist accepts the requests and observations of teachers to modulate appropriate management strategies for the school context, also knowing how to connect vulnerability indicators to unprocessed traumatic experiences that can activate emotional dysregulation and intercept any unfavorable experiences that affect the learning process and on the psychosocial well-being of the new generations.

Teachers will acquire observational tools to read behaviors that are an expression of post-traumatic vulnerability and build activities and actions that facilitate the emotional regulation of the class, while creating a more effective synergy with the school psychologist.

The Trauma-Oriented paradigm precisely because it starts from a systemic vision, includes in the training proposal the school managers who will reflect on the strategies for implementing this paradigm in their institutions, as well as on the importance of consolidating a climate of organizational psychological security in their own contexts.

A trauma-oriented school adopts a precise organizational model and recognizes the centrality of the school context as a place that restores and activates a sense of safety in children and young people.
