Why We Need Trauma-Sensitive Schools
Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative
This video features one school, the Baker School in Brockton, MA, that is becoming trauma-sensitive through a concerted, well-supported districtwide effort. This video highlights the importance of leadership — superintendents, assistant superintendents-principals, and educators — in creating the understanding and infrastructure that can support the team work among staff needed for all children to be successful.
Accompanying the video is a discussion guide designed for educators and others who want to embark on or engage in the process of creating trauma-sensitive schools.
