Introducing TISE

Through Trauma-Informed Skills for Educators (TISE), K–12 educators learn how trauma can affect students and how to provide support.

The Trauma-Informed Skills for Educators (TISE) online course is designed to teach K-12 teachers about how trauma can affect students and how they can effectively support students following stressful and traumatic experiences. TISE uses a strength-based and relational lens that highlights students’ resilience and promotes school connectedness and belonging. The eight-module curriculum provides concrete strategies to help educators support students in more trauma-responsive ways, such as by fostering a trauma-sensitive classroom climate, communicating with students about trauma, de-escalating disruptive incidents, and fostering trauma responsiveness throughout the school community.
