Abstract/Description

Most children are affected by at least one traumatic event in their life. These traumatic events can happen at any stage of a child’s life and can have a significant impact on their development and ability to function in many environments. One of the most prominent environments in a child’s life is the classroom, as this is where they spend a large part of their days. Research shows that leading a trauma-informed curriculum is an effective way to help trauma-affected students. The following manual provides an extensive literature review and valuable information as to why and how to implement a trauma-informed curriculum as well as useful tools and resources.
