Effects of trauma on the brains of children

What I found most interesting was the information relating to the effects of trauma on the brains of children. The fact that stress related to trauma creates toxins in the brain is especially troubling and sad. What I found most valuable was the chapter on mean vs nice and the fact that it can be turned into lessons that make students re-evaluate their interactions with each other. Having students look back at their actions and think about the impact it had on their classmates makes for a better classroom climate. It makes students evaluate their actions, which can then have the effect of them changing their behavior. Having the knowledge that some portion of my students will have gone through trauma, I can better prepare lessons and interactions that will accommodate their needs.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!
