    Title: Ethically Speaking: Preparing School Counselors-in-Training to Implement Trauma-Informed Practices

    Description: One out of every three children and adolescents has encountered an adverse childhood experience and the impact is often intensified within underserved communities and schools. Thus, school counselor educators and supervisors have an ethical obligation to prepare school counselors-in-training to address inequities and promote trauma-sensitive learning environments for all students. When school counselors are equipped with the tools to implement trauma-informed practices within their school counseling programs and overall school environments, students will feel safe, comfortable, and ready for learning.
