Brain-changing strategies to trauma-proof our schools

by Maggie Kline | 21 October 2020
PAPERBACK
Thousands of childen in the UK have experienced at least one type of trauma. While some are obvious, like poverty, abuse, or migration, other experiences that may be invisible or "no big deal" to adults can elicit trauma responses in kids. Under these conditions, their brains and bodies react differently than those of unaffected peers, causing anxiety, hyperactivity, aggression, shutting down, and acting out-behaviours that hinder academic success and disrupt the entire classroom. When mental and emotional health are prioritized in the classroom as much as academic performance, everyone wins-and when you apply a trauma-informed lens to your teaching, you'll facilitate positive outcomes for the entire class. Brain-Changing Strategies to Trauma-Proof our Schools gives you the tools to understand, identify, and address trauma-driven behaviours so students feel comfortable, supported, and safe at school-and you feel empowered and effective. Supported by evidence-based tools and neuroscience-backed ideas, you'll learn a whole-brain approach to trauma-informed teaching, including: How trauma rewires kids' brains, and how that shows up in the classroom How to integrate trauma-informed practices and social-emotional learning into your curriculum and classroom management Trauma-sensitive concepts, relational skills, and somatic interventions How to build inner stability and create feelings of safety, connectedness, competence, and joy
