The Concordia University (Ore.) College of Education offers a free collection of trauma-informed resources and training that provides help for managing stress at school. Educators can use the resources to learn techniques for long-term self-care and ways to tackle challenging behavior caused by trauma.
The trauma-informed approach provides students with emotional tools to build their capacity for healthy relationships, more focused learning and greater happiness. Teaching students about stress responses and resilience can help them better recognize their emotions, cope with trauma and reach out for help before they act out – freeing them from emotional roadblocks so they can learn more readily and thrive in classrooms. These resources provide informative best practices guidelines for implementing the trauma-informed approach to achieve positive results in schools.
