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.

As a teacher, you have the opportunity to touch children’s lives in a very special way. Your actions have a lifelong impact. When a death influences the lives of your students, you and your school, can make a life-long difference by creating an environment for healing and support.
