Students are carrying the burden of trauma and ongoing stress from home, demands, peer, loss, restrictions, and marginalization sources. Let’s help them unpack this unyielding weight by learning more about trauma informed strategies. The aim of this presentation is to provide informative, best practices guidelines by focusing on the current research in traumatology, neuroscience, and positive education to help students who are affected by trauma. Realistic and concrete classroom approaches to make our classrooms more friendly and supportive to students managing stress and trauma will be introduced. Strategies related to resilience, underdeveloped neural pathways, emotional regulation, and interpersonal connections will be provided. Trauma informed resources to help teachers better understand the students’ developmental, emotional, and social challenges at school will be provided.
