Trauma Informed Classrooms
Trauma informed practice is becoming more widely recognised as a strategy to intervene with challenging behaviours and students who may present with anxiety issues etc.
Children who experience abuse, family violence, neglect, and unresponsive care suffer a range of emotional, social, psychological and behavioural consequences that impact widely on their education and relationships. Interpersonal violence and conflict (bullying & harassment) is increasingly being understood within a trauma-based framework.
Over the past decade, there have been major developments in the research and knowledge about the way that trauma affects the developing brain and how a relational and systematic discipline model can help resilience and begin the process of repairing relationships.

- A 10 step functional behaviour intervention based on trauma informed practice
- The developing brain and how trauma impacts on life span development
