RISE UP national programming-Mid-Atlantic States

The Mid-Atlantic’s Arts-Based Learning will present our RISE UP (Resilience in School Environments: Understanding & Practice) virtual workshop this fall for all our school districts. The workshop has been redesigned to accommodate online facilitation with segments on trauma-informed care, self-regulation, and the brain and mental health. It also provides details on how to work with students from a trauma-informed approach. The redesigned model will be offered in 90- or 75-minute versions, with live facilitation between the virtual segments and information sessions. RISE UP is a part of the RISE Initiative under the Thriving Schools Common Area of Focus in Community Health and is available free of charge. If you’re interested in learning more about the virtual workshop, please contact Damión Perkins, Arts-Based Learning Health Educator, at
