Trauma-Informed Practices

Trauma-informed care recognizes and responds to the signs, symptoms, and risks of adverse events to better support the needs of the individual and to respond appropriately.  Students can’t learn unless they feel safe. When it comes to student trauma, there is much that is beyond educators’ power, but there is also a great deal they can do to build a supportive and sensitive environment where students feel safe, comfortable, take risks, learn, and even heal.
