Traumatic or adverse experiences are pervasive among school-aged children and youth. Trauma undermines students’ ability to learn and manage their feelings, behavior, and relationships. Meanwhile, school-based professionals often struggle with responding to the complex needs of traumatized students within the typical school day.
The second edition of Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students is designed for professionals in mental health and education settings, and combines content and expertise from experts in the fields of education, school psychology, school administration, resilience, and trauma into one comprehensive guide. 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 for adapting instruction, modifying the classroom environments, and building competency for students and staff. New chapters address topics such as post-traumatic growth, interpersonal violence, and trauma screening and assessment among others. Educators can continue to use this updated edition as an ongoing resource, with the ability to quickly and easily access a variety of school-based strategies to help improve educational and social outcomes for traumatized students.
“This highly relevant and impressive volume covers a full range of issues and incorporates both theory and professional practice for trauma-informed classrooms. It will be particularly relevant to teachers, students, counsellors, support staff, administrators, politicians, and board members. Even parents who are overwhelmed by circumstances, and who can acclimate to the book’s scholarly language, will find hope in learning about the caring and supportive work being done on behalf of affected children and other concerned parties.”
