What does trauma-informed teaching really look like in the classroom, and can we really achieve it?
Maybe you, like many other teachers, will reach the end of a busy day feeling exhausted, deskilled and less than keen to dive into a book on the theory of trauma. Luckily you won't find any complex theory or jargon in this book, but you will gain an understanding of how small humans develop, how perplexing behaviours can be explained and learn inclusive strategies that will help all children in your classroom and school. Part 1 provides you with an explanation of what trauma-informed teaching involves. Then, Part 2 lists an A-Z of issues and behaviours for you to flip to in your busiest moments, ranging from Aggression and Lateness right through to Learning Challenges and Zzz (sleep issues).
Gain new understanding into the children in your classroom with this book offering you strategies to better support every child's mental health and resilience.

At last, the ultimate, practical guide to understanding children and their behaviour. Humane and grounded in science, this book could change lives. Instead of punishing 'naughty' or 'badly behaved' children, teachers and others will get the tools to do their job, recognising the impact of trauma and other adversity, and enabling children to learn and to grow. Sir Norman Lamb, Chair of Maudsley NHS and Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition
Every person working in a School needs to read this book! By demystifying complex behaviour, this book gives readers the confidence to question 'School-shaped' approaches and the tools to build relationships based on trust, which is the key to meeting the needs of children affected by trauma. Naomi Edmund, adoptive parent and former school nurse
The authors' hands on experience of developmental trauma means the book is written with a lot of heart and the advice therein has real integrity. It is also written with an understanding for the lot of teachers trying their best to accommodate ever more complex needs in their classrooms. The result is a refreshingly succinct, accessible, informative read - one that parents and teachers alike should find immensely useful. Nick Moss, headteacher, Minchinhampton Primary Academy
