Trauma & Healing

One out of every 4 children attending school has been exposed to a traumatic event that can affect learning and/or behavior.  This startling statistic indicates the need for school staff to understand the impact and implications that trauma has in the school setting.

Trauma can take many forms, ex.  physical, emotional, sexual.  It can also be the result of nature (hurricane, tornado, etc.) or manmade (terrorism, nuclear, etc.).  Whatever the situation, the results can be devastating to students as well as staff.  Information and planning are critical to contributing to the most positive responses and outcomes of such events.
