About the Book:

Research has shown when children are exposed to traumatic events they can be impacted academically, socially, and emotionally. They often face various challenges. These challenges include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, and difficulty focusing. While there has been research done pertaining to the impact of trauma on school-age children, more resources and evidence-based strategies must be utilized amongst professionals to help address the mental health needs that come along with children who have been exposed to traumatic events. This textbook provides trauma-informed strategies to support youth in the K-12 setting. After reading the textbook, readers will be able to identify the impact of trauma on youth; be equipped with information on behaviors and other symptoms related to post-traumatic stress; and will have access to effective strategies to use when working with children and adolescents who have been exposed to traumatic events.
