The Trauma Toolkit
Senate Bill 1 (2019) mandates schools to become trauma informed. We will “unpack” the toolkit in this session
by discussing trauma teams and resources you can take back to your school and put into action! Lori Vogel,
LCSW, KASSW and Lora Magness, MSW, CSW, KASSW Conference Chair will provide you with a guideline
on creating trauma informed schools.
Breakout Topics
• Developmental Trauma Disorder: Why PTSD in Children Looks Like ADHD,
featuring Dr. Dede Wohlfarth
Adverse Childhood Experiences are common in children, yet they are often misdiagnosed
because these children don’t fit the traditional DSM V diagnostic “boxes.” Instead, children
who have experienced neglect, abuse and trauma often exhibit a range of symptoms that
share substantial overlap with ADHD. This intermediate level workshop will assume
you know a great deal about ADHD, but will hopefully deepen your understanding of this\
disorder, introduce you to the concept of Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD), compare
symptoms of ADHD and DTD, apply research regarding DTD to clinical cases, and explore
some of the emerging research on treatment for DTD.
• Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Their Role in
Predicting Suicide, presented by Dr. Joseph Bargion
Participants will learn how ACEs may predict suicide in students. Participants will learn how to
incorporate ACEs information in their practice when dealing with students who may be suicidal.
• Play Therapy Basics presented by Beth Lewis, MA, LMFT, RPT, TBRI
Practitioner
This workshop will present the basics of play therapy and show how techniques can be used at
all ages, not just for elementary students.
• Supporting LGBTQ+ Students, presented by Julia Bennington, LCSW, Certified
School Social Worker
• Self-Care for School Social Workers-Optional after-conference
workshop, presented by Brandy Gordon, LCSW

Blurb about the 2018 Fall Conference: 

I truly enjoyed KASSW's 2018 Fall Conference! I'd also like to take a moment to thank everyone who came and made the event so successful. KASSW works hard to keep school social workers up to speed on issues, interventions, best practices, and advocate for our needs at the macro level. There is support for all school social workers and I am proud to serve on the conference committee. I look forward to the 2019 Fall Conference to learn, grow, and reunite with the best group of individuals!
