About the Book

This examination of child trauma in the school environment focuses on how it impacts cognitive, emotional and social development, and offers perspectives and strategies for fostering trauma-sensitive school culture. Strong evidence suggests the central problems are rarely identified by educators. When the issues are properly understood and addressed, teachers, administrators and parents are can more effectively serve students’ emotional and social needs, resulting in dramatic improvement in test scores, attendance, teacher retention and parental involvement, as well as out-of-school suspensions and teacher absenteeism.
