The impact of trauma resonates in schools and can impair learning as well as cause challenging classroom behaviors. This chapter defines trauma as a response to adverse life experiences that can negatively affect physical, emotional, academic, and intellectual functioning. Specifically, it describes the impact of trauma on neurobiology and brain development, as well as academic, cognitive, behavioral, and social/emotional functioning. It also outlines practical, applicable strategies for addressing classroom management as well as six specific principles for educators who seek to support the social/emotional and academic development of students impacted by trauma. Professional self-care is also outlined as a vital core practice necessary to assist teachers in consistently approaching students from a strength-based perspective.
