- Suggestions for classroom setup - Proactive behavioral supports - Checklists for identifying triggers - Examples of trauma-aware support from real-life students and teachers - Strategies for recognizing trauma exposure
Every teacher brings their own unique culture, style, and passion into the classroom. This book offers a blueprint for creating a safe, welcoming classroom based in trauma-sensitive practice that can be adapted to your unique classroom.
