I’m excited to announce that my new book is available for pre-order on the Brookes Publishing website. Building Trauma-Sensitive Schools: Your Guide to Creating Safe, Supportive Learning Environments for All Students details how trauma impacts youth at school and is available now. Read it to learn exactly what school teams can do about the effects of trauma from a personal, relational perspective as well as through systems level change. Both matter as educators must work together to prevent trauma from occurring in schools at the same time they respond effectively to the needs of traumatized youth (and adults). Trauma-sensitive educators also need to take good care of themselves and one another in order to do this work well.
Read the chapters to find out what you as an educator can practically do to help all students and staff feel safe, be connected, get regulated, and learn. Gain access to oodles of downloads with your purchase too. Then, be ready to help every learner thrive while also prioritizing your own wellbeing.
I cannot promise you an easy fix when it comes to meeting the needs of all students in trauma-sensitive learning environments. What I can tell you is that this work is absolutely worth it. By working together, we will cultivate hope for youth, educators, and entire communities.
It’s an honor to partner with you to build trauma-sensitive schools!
Thank you for your support,
