Trauma-Sensitive Schools 

Trauma and adverse childhood experiences are increasingly common for today's students—and awareness is growing about how they can affect a young person's life, outlook, and ability to learn. This reality can be heart-wrenching for educators and presents significant challenges for schools. How can educators be more responsive to the needs of students suffering from trauma? This issue will highlight new research and findings on developmental trauma and learning, explore approaches for accommodating and supporting affected students (in instruction, discipline, relationship-building, and assessment), and call attention to common practices and policies that exacerbate problems. We'll also look at self-care steps for teachers working with these students.
