"This book is a much needed resource and guide for novice and veteran teachers learning to create trauma-sensitive school environments. It provides a comprehensive review of information, examples, strategies, and tools based on research of effective trauma-informed practices."
Regena F. Nelson, PhD, professor and chair of the Department of Teaching, Learning and Educational Studies at Western Michigan University
"The editor and the book's contributors provide readers with a detailed road map of practical, trauma-informed strategies and practices. They are not asking us to do more in our educational system. Instead, they are showing us, through a multitude of examples, that when we change our approach, we can maximize positive behavior and gains in student learning. What greater gift can we offer our most struggling students?"
Jim Sporleder, MS, former principal at Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, Washington
"Most children are naturally resilient to stresses like watching a friend move out of the neighborhood or listening to parents having the occasional argument. Unfortunately, for far too many of our children and youth, their stressors are much more serious and more enduring. They are the students whose trauma impacts every facet of their lives, including school. If you're an educator or school mental health specialist, this book is a must read!"
Steve Sandoval, PhD, executive director of special services with Westminster Public Schools, Colorado, and one of Education Week's 2016 "Leaders to Learn From"
