FROM THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
Heather T. Forbes, LCSW
Join the author for this one-of-a-kind experience to learn more about how to implement the contents of her ground-breaking book, Classroom180! This event will bring the pages of this book to life and give you the skills, confidence, and knowledge you need to support all your students during these unsettling times.
This multi-day intensive course is a deep-dive into the groundbreaking new book, Classroom180: A Framework for Creating, Sustaining, and Assessing the Trauma-Informed Classroom, by Heather T. Forbes, LCSW. The Classroom180 Framework is a comprehensive roadmap of what it means to fully create, implement, and sustain a trauma-informed classroom from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. Additionally, Classroom180 includes an assessment tool, the Classroom180 Rubric, that can be used by administrators and others specialists who support teachers on the journey of becoming trauma-informed.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this training is virtual. It is a blended training with the majority of the sessions conducted LIVE on the BCI Zoom platform with some course work being done through our Trauma-Informed Online Academy (TIOA). Each participant will receive a log-in and password to access the TIOA during the training.
This training is also being tailored to the current situation with the pandemic. Strategies and tools discussed are being labeled whether or not they are "Pandemic Possible." You will gain valuable ways to connect with your students despite the limitations created by remote learning and social distancing by attending this bootcamp. Each bootcamp has participants from around the U.S, Canada, and the world. We are creating a synergetic space to find new and innovative solutions to creating a trauma-informed classroom during these exaggerated times.

Heather T. Forbes, LCSW, is the owner of the Beyond Consequences Institute and author of Classroom180 and numerous other books on the topic of working with children impacted by trauma. Coming from a family of educators, Heather has a passion for helping children in the classroom. Trauma robs children of their curiosity, and Heather’s passion is to help these students return back to their innate love for learning. She consults and lectures extensively with both general and special education schools around the nation. Her signature style is to bridge the gap between academic research and “when the rubber hits the road” classroom situations, giving teachers and school personnel the understanding and tools they need for even the most challenging of students. Heather has worked in schools with trauma-impacted students and knows firsthand how challenging it can be on a daily basis with these students. Much of her insight on understanding trauma, disruptive behaviors, and developmental delays, comes from her own experience of raising two internationally adopted children and mentoring a severely trauma-impacted young adult.
