Educating students who experience significant challenges outside the classroom can present opportunities for a strengths-based approach when effective tools are employed. Responsiveness to cultural and adverse life experiences sparks renewed pathways for connecting with students of all developmental levels. The trauma-informed, culturally responsive (TICR) approach represents a tool that gives educators insight into the impact of trauma and culture on students’ academic experience. The present chapter defines the TICR approach by outlining key tenets of trauma-informed practice and deconstructing the cultural context that impacts educators and students. Practical strategies for engaging the TICR approach in the classroom are reviewed. Implications for educator and student experiences in the classroom are discussed.
