RISE UP: Trauma-Informed Practice Trainings with Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Program

Resilience in School Environments: Understanding and Practice (RISE UP)

RISE UP is an online workshop for teachers, school staff, and administrators designed to explore the prevalence and potential impact of trauma and stress on student behavior and offer methods and strategies to help educators navigate challenging classroom interactions.

Using a trauma-informed approach, Teaching Artists from Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Program employ theatre, experiential learning, and arts integration techniques in service of the following objectives:

  • Reframe challenging student behavior through a trauma-informed lens.
  • Understand the potential role of the body’s fight/flight/freeze response in challenging student interactions.
  • Learn and practice self-regulation techniques in order to show up for our students as our highest selves.



*Note: All of these sessions offer the same content. Participants should only sign up for one of the three.
