Becoming a Trauma Informed Teacher

Buy Now


Trauma can have very significant and lasting effects on children. When our students have experienced a traumatic event, such as a loved one's death, violence, abuse, neglect, natural disaster, serious illness, or other distressful event, it can have a profound effect on their emotional and mental health, along with their behaviors. As teachers, it is important to learn how to recognize signs of trauma, the causes of trauma, how to discuss trauma and ways you can help create an accepting place for your students to succeed.
