Trauma-Informed Schools & Social Emotional Learning
Trauma results from an event, or series of events or circumstances, that a student finds overwhelming or life-changing. The event can affect their psychological development or wellbeing. Student trauma includes things like abuse, domestic violence, and other types of violence.
Trauma-informed care or practice is a framework for how services are delivered. It’s based on knowledge and understanding of how trauma can affect people’s lives. Trauma-informed care means that services are aware and sensitive to a student’s history of trauma and how this might affect their behavior and the services they need. Without this understanding, services can unintentionally re-traumatize students.
Trauma-informed care involves all staff of Normandy Schools Collaborative. All staff members are important to a students’ recovery process and have the skills and sensitivity. Using trauma-sensitive language is an important part of our trauma-informed care.
