In this episode, we talk with Teen Life Coach, Yolanda Hall about the effects of trauma on our youth and how afterschool programs can use mindfulness to help students self-regulate during times of high stress.
We also discuss:
- the different responses to trauma (fight, flight, or freeze)
- how to help a student that's showing signs of trauma
- where to find resources on trauma informed care training
- and using mindfulness techniques as a coping strategy to deal with trauma
