All of our county school districts have recognized the impact of childhood trauma on educational success, and have begun the process making trauma sensitive practices a part of school culture.

We hope that all school districts recognize the impact childhood trauma has on a child's learning experience and will develop the necessary steps that will lead to their success!

A training on Self-Focus was held with CASA Volunteers and staff recently. This training was presented by Salene Cowher, CASA Board member and Psychotherapist. Salene presented on how to be mindful of how stress and frustrations are affecting you and how to quiet the "noise." And that letting go does not mean giving up and the importance of self-monitoring. It was a fun and greatly needed training!
