From Trauma Reactive to Trauma Responsive

From Trauma Reactive to Trauma Responsive

From Trauma Reactive to Trauma Responsive

Research informs us that over 50% of all children will have experienced a traumatic event by the time they reach adulthood. (Copeland, W.E. et al, 2007) These children often get stuck in a survival loop which diminishes their capacity to regulate their emotions and behaviour. They no longer feel safe. Learning can only happen when a child feels safe.

Trauma informed schools promote feelings of physical, social and emotional safety in children. A trauma informed school understands and recognises the impact of trauma on children and their learning and responds to these children in a way that promotes growth and healing.

When we understand challenging behaviour as a possible trauma response, we can meet that behaviour with compassion and connection rather than sanctions and punishment. A trauma informed school will be curious about what has happened to the struggling child rather than being preoccupied with what is wrong with him.

From Trauma Reactive to Trauma Informed is a Croke Park C.P.D. Hour Webinar to support participants to

  • Understand the impact of Trauma on a child’s lived world
  • Respond compassionately to increase a felt sense of safety
  • Create a trauma sensitive learning environment
