Course Description:

Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom will help teachers cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. The authors—a mental health therapist and a veteran principal—provide proven, reliable strategies to help you:

  • Understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom.
  • Build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels.
  • Adopt a strengths-based approach that leads you to recalibrate how you view destructive student behavior and to perceive what students need to break negative cycles.
  • Head off frustration and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish.

Educators face the impact of trauma in the classroom every day. This book is a guide to seeking solutions rather than dwelling on problems, to building relationships that allow students to grow, thrive, and—most assuredly—learn at high levels.
