3Ps in a Pod host Angelia Ebner was so excited to introduce you to this week’s podcast guests and the work they do around Adverse Childhood Experiences and building resiliency. She first heard Amber Warner, Ricky Robertson, and Victoria Romero at the Corwin Visible Learning Conference and couldn’t wait to tell the rest of the Arizona K12 Center staff about them.
Together, the three recently published the book Building Resilience in Students Impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences: A Whole-Staff Approach. You can find additional resources connected to the book here or on the book's Facebook page here.
It is a working book. It’s not a ‘just read,’ but it’s a ‘read, reflect’,” Victoria explains. “And then there are questions for you to apply to your practice, so that you can validate what you’re already doing, but then see where you might have some gaps in your practice when it comes to merging social/emotional development and academic learning in your classroom.”
Amber Warner is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and you can learn more about her on Corwin.com. Ricky Robertson has been a teacher and Behavior Intervention Specialist; learn more about Ricky at teachfortrust.com or on Corwin.com. Victoria Romero has been as a teacher, coach, and principal; learn more about Victoria at Corwin.com.

In this episode, Ricky referenced Dr. Daniel J. Siegel’s work with “the brain in the hand” and how certain experiences limit students' access to the part of the brain they need "to basically be successful" in the classroom. That research is from Dr. Siegel’s 1999 book “Mindsight,” exploring interpersonal neurobiology. You can read about how the hand models the brain in this excerpt from the book here.
