ACEs Trauma Training for Educators (Free) This is a free 43 minute video training resource designed to give anyone who works with children important trauma-focused information about how student learning and behavior is impacted by trauma and how educators and support staff can help students develop a greater sense of safety at school and begin to build new emotional regulation skills. As educators, we have to learn to not see the student's trauma response as defiance, disrespect, boredom, or intentional manipulation, but rather a protective response that requires safety in order to settle and help the child return to their "thinking" brain.

During the 50-minute presentation, a young adult living with mental illness and a family member tell their stories about mental health challenges, including what hurt and what helped.

Moving stories from positive role models have the power to change kids' views. The discussion gives students the rare opportunity to ask questions about mental health challenges to people who have lived it.

Resolve, Fundamentals of Mediation provides training, consultation, coaching, and on-site support to schools for whole school implementation of restorative justice and education programs for students on the topics of conflict resolution and bullying intervention. Restorative justice provides a framework for building student accountability and responding to wrongdoing while strengthening student and community relationships. It is not a singular program or process, rather a philosophy and practice based on a core set of principles that emphasize healing and repair over punishment, inclusion over exclusion, and individual accountability with a high level of community support. Please note: Resolve also offers Family Mediation services.

Resolve: Getting results with restorative justice programs. Our remarkable partner organization, Resolve, is one of the hosts for the Northwest Justice Forum listed above. Resolve is having a definite impact in our region with the Restorative Justice programs they lead in many of our local schools.

Some results to note: at North Medford High School, there have been 63% fewer referrals for disrespect, and 78% fewer referrals for weapons on campus since the program began. Rogue River Junior/Senior High School has seen an increase in graduation rates of 13%, an increase in attendance of 8% and 612 fewer disciplinary referrals.

At Phoenix High School, there have been 66% fewer disciplinary referrals, 47% fewer suspensions and an attendance increase of 13%.

Resolve’s other Restorative Justice school partners include Talent Middle School, Roosevelt Elementary School, Ruch Community School, Jefferson Elementary School and Central Medford High.


Response is a comprehensive high school-based program that increases awareness about suicide among high school staff, students and parents. All program components are designed to heighten sensitivity to depression and suicidal ideation, increase identification, and facilitate referral. The program also provides procedures to refer a student who may be at-risk for suicide. Components include (1) a two-hour awareness training for staff, (2) a four-hour student curriculum (spread across four class periods), and parent awareness materials and an implementation assistance manual for administrators. Before implementing the awareness components, participating schools must identify key staff to serve on a suicide prevention team. Key school-based staff should include the principal or vice-principal, a school-based RESPONSE coordinator, two "suicide contacts" responsible for handling referrals, and a counselor.

Rural Mental Health First Aid Nearly twenty percent of people in the United States live in a rural area. The challenges faced by residents in rural areas are significantly different than those in urban areas. Rural populations are often underserved and possess health and behavioral health disparities. Rural communities have a chronic shortage of behavioral health providers and limited access to services. Mental Health First Aid has the potential to address these disparities in rural communities by increasing mental health literacy (i.e., knowledge and beliefs about mental disorders which aid their recognition, management, or prevention) among key community members – creating a stronger, more prepared network of support for individuals living in rural areas. Rural Mental Health First Aid is a way to build community level capacity to identify mental health and substance use issues early and for rural residents to increase their confidence to intervene and refer people to the resources that do exist. Rural communities have a long history of being innovative and taking responsibility. Mental Health First Aid is a way to increase the level of baseline knowledge about mental health and substance use issues and to decrease the negative perceptions often associated with these issues. Our targeted effort to serve rural communities addresses their unique characteristics, recognizes the community of rural Mental Health First Aid instructors, and enhances community capacity around behavioral health issues in rural areas. How Can I Get my Community Involved? Communities interested in learning about bringing the training to their area should review our rural Quick Start Guide on how to get started. (8)
