Teaching Channel Talks 48: A Practical Guide to Trauma-Informed Teaching

A trauma-informed approach emphasizes that a student is hurt, not bad, and that although their behavior is disruptive and problematic it’s an adaptive response to their environment. They are not broken, so we don’t have to fix them. Learn key steps from Christie Badry and Wendy Amato for integrating a trauma-informed approach across your district so that every adult is ready to help support students who need the most care.
