Supporting and Educating Traumatised Students by Eric Rossen and Robert Hull
Traumatic or adverse experiences are pervasive among school-aged children and youth. Trauma undermines students' ability to learn, form relationships, and manage their feelings and behaviour. School-based professionals working with traumatised students are often unaware of their complex needs or how to meet them within the hours of the typical school day.
Combining knowledge of the cognitive and behavioural effects of trauma, evidence-based interventions, educational best practices, and the experiences of veteran educators, Supporting and Educating Traumatised Students: A Guide for School-Based Professionals presents a new framework for assisting students with a history of trauma. Designed specifically for busy educators who work with traumatised students daily to examine the impacts of numerous traumatic experiences on school-aged children and youth.
