My name is Jennifer Bilbrey, and I am a doctoral student at East Tennessee State University. I am working on attaining a doctoral degree in Early Childhood Education. In order to finish my studies, I need to complete a research project. The title of my research study is “The Design and Validation of a Test for Teachers: Measuring Knowledge of Trauma.” The purpose of this study is to develop and validate a test that measures teachers’ knowledge of trauma. I hope the test can help guide professional developments for organizations and enhance curriculum in pre-service university programs.

I would like to give a brief, anonymous, online test to in-service teachers of grades Preschool through Fifth grade and pre-service (College students) students in Early Childhood Education, SPED, or  Elementary Education programs using Qualtrics online software. It should only take about 10-15 minutes to finish.

I have included a flyer below and a link for the survey.
I sincerely appreciate your consideration.

Great to see this, Jennifer, and I commend you!  Anything we can do to get more teachers and educational staff more informed and actionable tools for helping children navigate  and recover from trauma is welcome and crucial.

In my own work, one of our chief research professors and practitioners is Peta Stapleton, of Bond University in AU.  She routinely conducts and helps people construct valid research all over the world, and is a very interesting person (and AU Psychologist of the year!)  

Please let us know how those of us in Energy Psychology (a huge area) might be helpful to you as most of us have been working to provide 'trauma-informed' education and tools, for more than 2 decades.

Kind regards and kudos, Jondi Whitis, MTOT and co-author of Compassion In Action: Emotional First-Aid for Children
