Traumatized students, traumatized District
By Paul Jablow, The Notebook | October 23, 2014
Stoneleigh Fellow Jody Greeblatt and her Fellowship are featured in The Notebook.
The District has assigned Jody Greenblatt, a Stoneleigh Fellow, to coordinate training with partners such as United Way to make it more available to teachers, principals, and counselors. The training is free, although District personnel must take it on their own time.
“Having more staff [would not] negate the need for all staff to think about children, especially traumatized children, in a different way,” Greenblatt said. “Interventions being taught actually work.”
Greenblatt was also instrumental in securing a five-year, $3.5 million School Climate Transformation Grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to overhaul approaches to disciplining students, including school-based behavioral health support to at-risk students.
