From the author of Mindfulness for Teachers, a guide to supporting trauma-exposed students. Fully half the students in U.S. schools have experienced trauma, violence, or chronic stress. In the face of this epidemic, it falls increasingly to teachers to provide the adult support these students need to function in school. But most educators have received little training to prepare them for this role. In her new book, Tish Jennings—an internationally recognized leader in the field of social and emotional learning—shares research and experiential knowledge about the practices that support students' healing, build their resilience, and foster compassion in the classroom. In Part I, Jennings describes the effects of trauma on body and mind, and how to recognize them in students' behavior. In Part II, she introduces the trauma-sensitive practices she has implemented in her work with schools. And in Part III, she connects the dots between mindfulness, compassion, and resilience. Each chapter contains easy-to-use, practical activities to hone the skills needed to create a compassionate learning environment.

"Traumatic or adverse experiences are pervasive among school-aged children and youth. These experiences undermine students' ability to learn, form relationships, and manage their feelings and behaviour. Meanwhile, educators and school-based professionals often remain unaware of the complex needs of their students or how to meet them within the hours of the typical school day, all while possibly dealing with their own stressors. Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students: A Guide for School-Based Professionals provides a practically oriented tool for understanding and assisting students with a history of trauma. Designed specifically for professionals in mental health and education settings, this volume combines content and expertise from practitioners, researchers, and other experts with backgrounds in education, school psychology, school social work, school administration, resilience, school policy, and trauma. The book provides a thorough background on current research in trauma and its impact on school functioning; administrative and policy considerations; and a broad set of practical and implementable strategies and resources for adapting and differentiating instruction, modifying the classroom and school environments, and building competency for students and staff impacted by trauma. Rather than provide complex treatment protocols, the chapters in this book offer simple techniques and strategies designed for all types of educational environments within the context of multiple potential sources of trauma. Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students is an essential resource for classroom teachers, administrators, and school-based professionals, as well as courses that address crisis, trauma, and education across a broad spectrum of specializations."--

What if you had the superpower to understand the most hidden barrier to your students’ achievement or the ability to see exactly what motivates them and bring that motivation to life? That is the power of a trauma-informed and culturally responsive (TICR) approach. A TICR approach helps you understand the underlying causes of challenging behaviors as well as personal motivators for academic achievement, and enables you to respond to students in a way that meets their underlying needs, honors their life stories, and empowers them while setting appropriate limits. When effectively applied, it unleashes a new method of tapping into student potential by giving you insight into students’ life stories and fostering relationships that help maximize their academic experience. This guide provides an overview of the three tenets of a TICR approach for maximizing students’ social-emotional and academic well-being; gives you the tools to understand the underlying reason for behavior issues; identifies common trauma triggers; outlines how to adjust the classroom to become more responsive to the needs of students with trauma; offers tips for acknowledging the cultural experience of students and making classroom adjustments that promote inclusivity; discusses secondary traumatic stress (STS) that may affect educators, and how to address it.

Children who experience chronic stress or traumatization are vulnerable to becoming chronically hyper-vigilant and constantly alert to potential dangers, or dissociative and withdrawn. In schools, such children are physically present in class but have difficulty achieving a learning state receptive to new information. In 2012, a partnership between Salisbury Communities for Children, the University of South Australia School of Education, Schools Ministry Group and a DECD Primary School, led to planning and implementation of multiple strategies to support a Year 2-3 teacher to constructively respond to the needs of a class that included several chronically stressed and traumatized 6- to 8- year-old children. This report details the evaluation of the project, and makes recommendations for further implementation.

This book explores how educational institutions have failed to recognize and effectively address the symptoms of trauma in students of all ages. Given the prevalence of traumatic events in our world, including the COVID pandemic, Gross argues that it is time for educational institutions and those who work within them to change their approaches and responses to traumatic symptoms that manifest in students in schools and colleges. These changes can alter how and what we teach, how we train teachers, how we structure our calendars and create our schedules, how we address student behavior and disciplinary issues, and how we design our physical space. Drawing on real-life examples and scenarios that will be familiar to educators, this resource provides concrete suggestions to assist institutions in becoming trauma-responsive environments, including replicable macro- and microchanges. Book Features: Focuses on trauma within the early childhood-adult educational pipeline. Explains how trauma is often cumulative, with recent traumatic events often triggering a revival of traumatic symptomology from decades ago. Provides clarifications of currently used terms and scoring systems and offers new and alternative approaches to identifying and ameliorating trauma. Includes visual images to augment the descriptions in the text.

Stop trauma in its tracks, address disruptive behaviors, and create a safe and nurturing school environment with a neuroscience-based approach in your classroom. More than 32 million children in the US suffer from trauma symptoms. Some have had adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), like neglect, abuse, violence, and loss, or have experienced distress from medical trauma and social injustice. Toxic traumatic stress shapes the structure and function of both brain and body, which can lead to anxiety, hyperactivity, aggression, shutting down, and acting out--emotions and behaviors that hinder learning and create classroom chaos. Maggie Kline, a family therapist, trauma specialist, school psychologist, and former teacher, gives you whole-brain, heart-centered tools to identify and reverse trauma-driven behaviors so students feel supported and safe. Her unique roadmap will empower you to facilitate positive school-wide outcomes as you learn: • How trauma alters kids' brains causing cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges • Evidence-based somatic, relational, and mindfulness interventions to rewire reactivity • How to manage Pre-K-12 classrooms to promote empathy, cooperation, and belonging • Social equity practices so kids from all backgrounds feel safe, valued, and joyful • Concrete steps to restore resilience following natural and man-made catastrophes

Growing evidence supports the important relationship between trauma and academic failure. Along with the failure of “zero tolerance” policies to resolve issues of school safety and a new understanding of children’s disruptive behavior, educators are changing the way they view children’s academic and social problems. In response, the trauma-sensitive schools movement presents a new vision for promoting children’s success. This book introduces this promising approach and provides K–5 education professionals with clear explanations of current research and dozens of practical, creative ideas to help them. Integrating research on children’s neurodevelopment and educational best practices, this important book will build the capacity of teachers and school administrators to successfully manage the behavior of children with symptoms of complex developmental trauma. “Kudos! Susan Craig has done it again. After Reaching and Teaching Children Who Hurt, she has written a book that will help administrators and educators truly make schoolwide trauma sensitivity a regular part of the way their schools are run. A major contribution to education reform.” —Susan Cole, director, Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative, Massachusetts Advocates for Children, and Harvard Law School. “Dr. Craig’s message is clear that promoting self-reflection, self-regulation and integration gives traumatized children the chance at learning that they’re not getting in traditional approaches. And she bravely points out that it’s critical for teachers to recognize the toll that this emotional work can take and the need for self-care. Being mindful of both the importance of trauma sensitive systems and the enormity of the task of helping vulnerable children build resilience is so critical for everyone working with and caring for our children.” —Julie Beem, MBA, Executive Director of the Attachment & Trauma Network, Inc.

Toward A Trauma Informed Pedagogy

Trauma-affected students are in our writing classrooms-whether or not they've self-disclosed, and whether or not we recognize them. If we refuse to acknowledge trauma or refuse to approach trauma as a pedagogical issue, we risk marginalizing these students by adhering to ableist pedagogies that dishonor differences in bodies, minds, and abilities. But when our pedagogies, our classrooms, and our faculty become trauma-informed, we can anticipate, embrace, and welcome the insights that trauma and disability offer. As educators, we may be looking for solid and certain plans for working with trauma-affected and disabled students and for overcoming pedagogical hurdles. But, students, classes, trauma, disability, and issues of access are not standard or universalize-able. Working within a disability studies framework, this project considers how to make learning accessible for trauma-affected students by 1) analyzing composition pedagogy through the lens of disability, and 2) building on Stephanie Kerschbaum's concept of critically considering anecdotal relations of disability in composition classrooms to include trauma. The project suggests a turn toward uncertainty--acknowledging that we don't know, or need to know, everything--and listening to stories that welcome trauma and disability into the composition classroom to enable us to develop new relationships with trauma and cultivate trauma-awareness.I argue that relationality--building relationships with students based on respect for their lived experiences with trauma and violence, as well as respect for their differences in bodies, minds, and abilities, is inherent to a trauma-informed writing pedagogy. I further argue that we must work collaboratively with students to recast our understanding of trauma, negotiate access, and implement moves that make our writing classrooms accessible. Finally, I theorize and lay out a flexible framework for enacting a trauma-informed pedagogy to dismantle the ableism that persists in our classrooms and to begin establishing cultures of access and authentically support student success.

What is trauma and what does it mean for the literacy curriculum? In this book, elementary teachers will learn how to approach difficult experiences through the everyday instruction and interactions in their classrooms. Readers will look inside classrooms and literacies across genres to see what can unfold when teachers are committed to compassionate, critical, and relational practice. Weaving her own challenging experiences into chapters brimming with children’s writing and voices, Dutro emphasizes that issues of power and privilege matter centrally to how attention to trauma positions children. The book includes questions and prompts for discussion, reflection, and practice and describes pedagogies and strategies designed to provide opportunities for children to bring the varied experiences of life, including trauma, to their school literacies, especially their writing, in positive, meaningful, and supported ways.
