Grounded in research and the authors’ experience working
with trauma-affected students and their teachers, Fostering Resilient Learners
will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students
across all content areas, year levels and educational settings. The authors – a
mental health therapist and a veteran principal – provide proven, reliable
strategies to help you

  • understand what trauma is and
    how it hinders the learning, motivation and success of all students in the

  • build strong relationships and
    create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels

  • adopt a strength-based approach
    that leads you to recalibrate how you view destructive student behaviours and
    to perceive what students need to break negative cycles

  • head off frustration and
    burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your
    students flourish.

Each chapter also includes questions and exercises to
encourage reflection and extension of the ideas in this book.

As an educator, you face the impact of trauma in the
classroom every day. Let this book be your guide to seeking solutions rather
than dwelling on problems, to building relationships that allow students to
grow, thrive and – most assuredly – learn at high levels.
