Gain new understanding into the children in your classroom and learn strategies to better support every child's mental health and resilience.
What does trauma-informed teaching really look like in the classroom, and can we really achieve it?
Maybe you, like many other teachers, will reach the end of a busy day feeling exhausted, deskilled and less than keen to dive into a book on the theory of trauma. Luckily you won't find any complex theory or jargon in this book, but you will gain an understanding of how children develop, how perplexing behaviours can be explained and learn inclusive strategies that will help all children in your classroom and school.
Part 1 provides you with an explanation of what trauma-informed teaching involves. Then, Part 2 lists an A-Z of issues and behaviours for you to flip to in your busiest moments, ranging from Aggression and Lateness right through to Learning Challenges and Zzz (sleep issues). Gain new understanding into the children in your classroom and learn strategies to better support every child's mental health and resilience.
