Recognizing Trauma in the Classroom: A Practical Guide for Educators
Bell, Hope; Limberg, Dodie; Robinson, Edward, III
Childhood Education, v89 n3 p139-145 2013
Certain at-risk behavior patterns are often associated with traumatic childhood experiences. With the role of schools evolving to shape children's developmental needs in today's world, educators across the globe bear an increasingly greater responsibility to identify and address these symptoms associated with childhood trauma. Given the differences in school infrastructure in various nations of the world, however, the services available to children through schools vary drastically. Nonetheless, the educators' position in respect to schooling and in shaping a society's future through education emphasizes their role as advocates for children experiencing trauma. In the article "Recognizing Trauma in the Classroom: A Practical Guide for Educators," Hope Bell, Dodie Limberg, and Edward "Mike" Robinson III address childhood trauma in the context of schools in the United States. Despite cross-national differences in educational settings and frameworks, teachers around the world may wish to consider these strategies for addressing symptoms of trauma evident in certain student behavior patterns. Given the differences across global regions, it is important to use context-based analysis of childhood trauma in instituting proper preventive measures. (Contains 1 table.)
