Child Trauma Toolkit for Educators

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network

Administrators, teachers, and staff can help reduce the impact of trauma on children by recognizing trauma responses, accommodating and responding to traumatized students within the classroom setting, and referring children to outside professionals when necessary. The Child Trauma Toolkit for Educators was developed to provide school administrators, teachers, staff, and concerned parents with basic information about working with traumatized children in the school system. It features resources in English and Spanish on trauma facts for educators, understanding child traumatic stress, the psychological and behavioral impact of trauma, self care for educators, and suggestions for educators.
