The Language of Trauma – Getting Behind the Pain, Loss & Fear: Heather Forbes

For the “Billys” in our classrooms, Plenary speaker Heather Forbes says that “he/she never knows that he’s going to be okay – even in the safe school environment. It’s not about behavior, but it’s about regulation. When students are dysregulated, this is when they need connection. It’s through the context of relationship that we help students find their place of homeostasis.”

Watch Heather Forbes explain why dysregulated students do not feel “alright” — even in safe environments.

Founder of Beyond Consequences Institute and author of Help for Billy, Heather Forbes will present a Plenary session at the Wired Differently/Trauma-Informed Schools Conference in New York.
