Model for arts-based somatic approach to healing communities with high levels on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and racial trauma pyramids and low on Maslow.

The SEL Pyramid is a resource for teachers and other school employees. The tool is not a diagnostic. Rather, it is intended to provide teachers with suggestions for activities that promote mental health. Based upon the responses, the tool will generate a list of resources with hyperlinks that may be added to the teacher’s strategies for teaching the whole child. In cases where complex trauma appears to be present, we recommend the teacher refer the child to an expert where diagnostics may be utilized for treatment. .
