About this Year’s Conference Theme:

“Resilience Realized! How to Braid Academics, Behavior and Culture to Build Extraordinary Brains!”

The trauma-informed care movement is sweeping the globe. Now almost everyone serving children and youth in educational settings knows something about childhood trauma and its devastating impact on learning, behavior and quality of life.  We also know that building student resilience is the antidote to traumatic experience.

But now that we are informed, how do we respond?

The 2019 NAREN-TranZed Conference is focused on providing you with the skills, strategies and structures that build and strengthen resilience in students—not in the future but right now and in your classrooms. The conference offers proven skills, strategies and structures that educators, counselors, leaders and support professionals can use immediately to establish a motivating, inspiring and transformational resilience-building experience for every student.

Walk away with specific tools for strengthening your students’ readiness for instruction and ability to learn.

Gain access to strategies to meet students’ needs for behavioral support including motivational tools and effective behavioral health structures

Learn how to create powerful, transformational school cultures that prioritize inclusion, equity, optimism and hope.

Braiding is the pathway to resilience in our schools.

Attending the 2019 NAREN-TranZed Conference will dramatically increase your braiding capacity!  A braided model of resilience building is infinitely stronger than the individual strands alone and is the true pathway to success and transformational outcomes are guaranteed! Join us to refine your ability to weave together all three strands of academics, behavior and culture to create powerful learning environments that strengthen resilience.

The 2019 NAREN-TranZed Conference speakers will reveal how to braid your academic, behavior and school culture approaches into a unified, practical and inspiring model that enhances resilience in students and in the staff that serve them. You will leave transformed by your 2019 NAREN-TranZed Conference experience and empowered to give your students perhaps the greatest gift you can offer them—Resilience Realized.
