TIG Manual

The TIG Manual is the foundation of TIG training.  Ever changing, the Manual includes all of the training modules, including PowerPoints and handouts.  Successful completion of TIG training, that takes place over a one year period, ensures that all participants have a common knowledge base and philosophy. 

The Manual includes information from the six modules of the Core Curriculum:

Grief & Loss

Trauma

Suicide Risk & Intervention

Illness & Injury

School Violence

TIG Implementation


Module II: Trauma

Trauma is the second Module of the TIG Core Curriculum.  This module focuses on creating a common understanding of trauma, its prevalence, and its impact.  How trauma impacts student learning, and how staff can appropriately respond are discussed. 

Participants will learn specific strategies for creating compassionate classrooms.  The impact of caring on staff and tips for self care are explored.

Remember that any death can reawaken feelings about a past loss. Both teens and adults who have experienced any death prior to this can feel the impact of that loss again. Sometimes feelings that surface may be about the past loss and not the recent death.
