Creating a Trauma-Informed School
A Social-Emotional Approach to Challenging Behaviors
This first of its kind online program shows you real life scenarios in actual classrooms. Filmed on location at St. Charles, Missouri, teachers illustrate what happens when they fail to intervene properly. First you are shown an unproductive approach that only escalates the problem. Then you see how to properly intervene in a trauma-informed way with practical strategies. Extensive commentary from Heather Forbes accompanies each scenario.
