The National Wounded Student™ Certificate Program
Kappa Delta Pi conference attendees are eligible to register at a discounted rate for the National Wounded Student™ Certificate Program, which is part of the Simon Youth Foundation’s Annual Educator Conference. The National Wounded Student Certificate Program is designed to give participants the latest research, tools, assessments, references, and practical ideas for understanding the effects of trauma on learning and behavior, as well as for working with wounded youth in your organizational setting (e.g., school, team, youth organization/club, church, foster care system). Participants will be guided through an original model developed by Dr. Joe Hendershott for understanding, reaching, and positioning wounded children to experience transformation in their lives. This course, which includes a workshop manual, is based on Dr. Hendershott’s two books: 7 Ways to Transform the Lives of Wounded Students and Reaching the Wounded Student.
