Trauma-Informed Strategies to Help Students Feel Safe and Supported

More than two-thirds of students report at least one traumatic event by age 16, which affect can how they think, feel, behave, and learn for years after the event. 
Understanding how trauma shows up in the brain, and in the body, allows us to address its symptoms through trauma-informed education. 

When educators are trauma-informed and receive the support they need, they are better equipped to identify and navigate trauma when it shows up in the classroom.

In this toolkit, you will gain 10 trauma-informed, SEL-aligned strategies that can be integrated into your classroom and school community to help students feel safe and supported, including:

  • 2 settle in activities for starting class and school-day transitions

  • 2 mindful movement activities for brain breaks
