The current mental health crisis has driven many teachers to leave the profession while students struggle with engagement and anxiety. Trauma-informed coping mechanisms are helpful, but this session goes a step further by incorporating much-needed but often missing support to help learners feel hopeful and provide educators with resources to care for themselves.

Based on research using the psychological science of hope, this session provides strategies educators can use to help students feel secure, build relationships, and improve academic outcomes. Included are actions and interventions that can be woven into classrooms and schools to foster mental wellness, achievement, and happiness, such as:

Classroom materials, tools, and reproducible
Scientific resources to quickly assess and monitor hope
Simple plans of action to support hope, engagement, and motivation with literacy
Vignettes from classrooms and the author’s own experiences with children who have experienced extreme trauma

Backed by the latest research, this session will increase hope, encourage higher academic attainment, equity, and inspire a sense of deeper fulfillment for students and educators.
