Use trauma-informed strategies to give students the skills and support they need to succeed in school and life
Nearly half of all children have been exposed to at least one adverse childhood experience (ACE), such as poverty, divorce, neglect, substance abuse, or parent incarceration. This workbook-style resource shows K-12 educators how to integrate trauma-informed strategies into daily instructional practice through expanded focus on:
The experiences and challenges of students impacted by ACEs, including suicidal tendencies, cyberbullying, and drugs
Behavior as a form of communication and how to explicitly teach new behaviors
How to mitigate trauma and build innate resiliency.
