Professionals in Learning Disabilities and Special Education
Trauma-Informed Practices in School
Presented by John Dominguez, Ph. D.,
and Karen Parisian, ATR, LCPC
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
This presentation will raise awareness among school personnel about the types of trauma students commonly experience and the impact such experiences can have on academic engagement, emotional regulation, and school conduct. We will discuss art therapy as a modality in processing traumatic events and experiences, as well as the functions, uses, and therapeutic value of art when words are difficult and feelings are hard to express. With trauma-informed practices, school personnel can build a healthy school community in which students feel safe, valued, and set up for success.
Dr. Dominguez is a Clinical Psychologist and Certified School Psychologist. He is the Educational Administrator of Arlyn School in Highland Park, a Therapeutic Day School with Extended Day and Young Adult Transition Program.
Karen Parisian is an Art Therapist and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor at Arlyn School.
