Graduate project

Supports and strategies for the trauma-informed teacher

Trauma occurs when someone feels intensely threatened by an event they are involved in or witness. In the classroom, educators continue to misunderstand behavior of traumatized students in the classroom. It’s often seen that these students just don’t care to learn. In order for students who have experienced trauma to be successful, educators, administrators, counselors, and support staff need to work together to help the students be academically successful. This project will focus on showcasing a handbook that will include trauma-informed practices to help educators meet their students’ needs.
