In order for students to meet academic expectations, they must feel like school is a place where they can be successful. One essential component of self-efficacy is a sense of belonging and discovery of strength in students who had previously been deemed failures. In this session, participants develop an understanding of how strength-based practices can combat the effects of trauma and feelings of rejection.
