Throughout their lifetimes, people can face challenges from toxic stress and trauma that influence their lives at any place, at any time. To be most effective, educators must understand the impact of trauma on neurobiology and brain development, academic and cognitive skills, behavior, and social-emotional functioning. They must learn to adapt the learning environment and strategies for instruction accordingly with these elements in mind. This chapter presents evidence-based and researched strategies that educators can employ to address the impact of trauma. From an educator’s point of view, the most helpful approach is twofold: firstly, an educator must be self-aware of his or her ability to manage his or her own challenges before, secondly, beginning to address challenges in the lives of students and their families.
