#5: Perri Broadbent-Hogan, finding joy in trauma-informed education

Perri Broadbent-Hogan is the Co-Principal at MacKillop Education in Geelong, working alongside young people who have experienced trauma and are engaging in alternative education. Perri is an incredibly passionate and fierce leader, dedicating her career to providing the best possible education to young people. She is constantly learning and upskilling in order to improve the outcomes for her students. Megan and Perri worked together in the leadership team at Australia's largest alternative school and it was during this time that Perri was completing her certifcation in the Neurosequential Model of Theraputics (NMT: https://www.attachmenttraumanetwork.org/neurosequential-model-of-therapeutics-nmt/).

In this episode, Perri reminds us of the importance of play and positive connection when supporting young people to heal from trauma. She shares some of the strategies she used in her classroom teaching practice and discusses the way the NMT has guided her to choose appropriate interventions for young peple to regulate and rewire their brain.

We're not lying when we say Perri is passionate. She is one of the most energetic people working in the field. Prepare for a lot of laughter in your ears!
