Whether you are looking for a Keynote Speaker, an in-depth Workshop or a Break-Out Session for your conference or event, Julia Rose Polk is excited to discover how she can best serve you and your community. Let her speak to your audience about healing and transforming childhood trauma in your school today!
As an on-the-ground practitioner and speaker on treating childhood trauma, Julia Rose Polk aims to provide your audience with a transformative experience that includes the following elements:
RELATIONAL TOOLS - More than any other intervention, creating a sense of safety and connection within our relationships is what trauma-informed care centers around. So, by equipping educators with tools supporting attunement, responsiveness, regulation and de-escalation, they become empowered to navigate an array of student experience and behavior in humane and effective ways.
REAL-WORLD EXAMPLES - By grounding in real-world practice examples and clinical progress stories, educators can learn directly from Julia Rose practical and approachable ways of applying this knowledge, and will leave with a sense of I-can-do-that-too!
REGULATORY GUIDANCE - Educators have the dual-task of learning how to best support student regulation, while also learning how to regulate themselves in inherently stressful workplace environments and situations. Helping educators identify the key elements of effective regulation leaves them feeling empowered and clear about supporting regulation in themselves and their students.
RELEVENT INFORMATION - Trauma experienced in childhood directly affects learning, brain development, social engagement and behavior. Obtaining basic knowledge about neuroscience and the fundamentals of trauma-responsive care will directly affect a teacher's experience in the classroom and their ability to effectively work with a variety of students - regardless of traumatic history or background.
Julia Rose speaks on an array of topics under the umbrella of trauma-informed care.
Her most sought-after speaking topics include:
Learn the stage-by-stage approach to integrating trauma-informed practices
into every level of your school system. Julia Rose's Path of Progress (TM) has guided agencies and institutions down the specific 7-stage path to comprehensive change at every level.
Take a deep dive into relational interventions and why they are so essential (and effective)
for use with students who've experienced trauma and relational injury. Dial in on how this 3-step approach to resolving conflict will leave you and your students feeling respected, protected and connected!
We cannot discuss childhood trauma without also looking at one of its greatest drivers: Violence. Reaching every level of human experience - personal, familial, communal and societal - you get to explore how this touches the youngest humans and affects them throughout the lifespan. Explore the implications of exposure to violence in the earliest years, and how it affects brain development
and human behavior, as well as what we can do to offset deleterious outcomes.
Prepare to learn the basic elements of de-escalation and how to safely and respectfully navigate
even the most stressful and charged moments with students. This event will leave you feeling clear, empowered and prepared to meet your students in the midst of dysregulated moments.
The most effective presentation is one that resonates with both the head and the heart, and which specifically addresses and responds to an audience’s needs.
