Trauma Informed Care
Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and support framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. ‘Psychological First Aid’ strategies sooth, assist, and help students function in a healthy manner. You will build a toolbox of problem solving activities, coping skills, breathing exercises, mindful activities, and plan for identifying and intervening with anxiety. In a trauma-informed school, the adults in the school community are prepared to recognize and respond to those who have been impacted by traumatic stress. In addition, students are provided with clear expectations and communication strategies to guide them through stressful situations. The goal is to not only provide tools to cope with extreme situations, but to create an underlying culture of true trauma informed understanding.
