Building Resilience in OST and Beyond

Resilience is a strong indicator for an individual’s success and healthy lifestyle. On Wednesday, November 30 from 8:30am-12noon at the University Center of Greenville (225 S Pleasantburg), attend this session to learn strategies on how to build support for all children experiencing toxic stress.  Learn how building resilience in school aged children can support social, emotional, and academic development while reducing the effects of toxic stress and trauma.

T.J. Rumler, Greenville County Schools Social Worker, will facilitate discussion and help guide attendees in learning how to combat the short and long term effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Learn to identify triggers in they children you serve, as well as yourself, and ways to de-escalate emotional/behavioral outbursts.

Come prepared to write your questions for the panel to be read by TJ. A Social Emotional Learning (SEL) session will help you take what you learned from the film and form tools that you can use with the children you serve.

Attendees will view Resilience (view trailer) which may elicit strong emotions in viewers as they reflect on trauma they endured during their own childhood. You may enter and leave the room as needed. We will also have individuals that you can talk with to work through those difficult emotions.

No food will be served, please plan accordingly.
