Students impacted by trauma face behavioural and mental health challenges, which, if not addressed, can have long-lasting effects. In Trauma-sensitive leadership: Creating a safe and predictable school environment, authors John F Eller and Tom Hierck emphasise leaders’ unique role in working with teachers, staff, families and the community to create schools where students build resilience to cope with traumatic experiences. This book helps school leaders understand the impact of trauma and develop a trauma-sensitive mindset that champions the idea that all students can learn at high levels and be successful. By implementing this book’s practical, research-based strategies in their schools, F–12 leaders can support teachers and students in forging positive behaviour-management and learning experiences.

Readers will:

  • understand childhood trauma and the impact traumatic experiences have on both students and educators
  • develop a trauma-sensitive mindset to help lead teachers in supporting students experiencing trauma
  • differentiate school structures and environments that support trauma-sensitive practices from those that may contribute to trauma
  • learn how to develop trusting, positive relationships with trauma-impacted students and their families
  • receive guidance on maintaining a trauma-sensitive school culture beyond the initial implementation.
