Abstract/Description

Trauma is an issue that plagues many individuals, including children. There is a large percentage of elementary students who have dealt or are dealing with trauma. Unfortunately teachers are often placed in the position of helping these students to deal with the aftermath of the trauma because they spend extended amounts of time with the children, and can usually make relationships and have a rapport with their students. Building a sense of community appears to be a way in which teachers can support all of their students, especially students experiencing trauma.
