Trauma-Informed Practice for Schools

PinExt Trauma Informed Practice for Schools

Schools are increasingly recognising how a pupil’s early traumatic experiences can affect their ability to function in the classroom and to learn, and there is a growing consensus that many of the most difficult behavioural challenges faced by teachers result from pupil’s early traumatic experiences.   The upside to this is a growing realisation that what schools do about trauma can really make the difference for deeply troubled pupils. Living and learning in safe, non-punitive environments makes a positive difference for trauma survivors.

By taking a trauma-informed approach, which means seeking to understand how the experience of abuse, neglect and abandonment shapes a person’s world view, schools can respond to those behaviours in a way that does not reinforce irrational beliefs, trigger memories of trauma, or cause more trauma.

This one day workshop aims to develop a school wide, trauma-informed perspective so that perspectives on behaviour shift.  Small changes in schools’ practices have big effects on our children By integrating trauma-informed practices into daily routines schools can minimize the effects of pre-existing trauma and reduce re-traumatization.

The programme covers these themes:

  • Introduction to trauma
  • Protective factors and the nature of early attachments
  • Trauma and brain development
  • Self-regulation and learning
  • Empowerment
  • Taking care of ourselves (guarding against vicarious trauma)
  • Trauma-informed discipline
