Difficult subject but there are many examples of how we might help these students. Very useful to those who teach students from difficult backgrounds.

This info is more for someone who has not had any ACE/trauma informed care training before. Information is valuable just info that I have heard and worked with before.

Fantastic book for teachers. I can use these ideas tomorrow. I have developed a greater sense of empathy for the kids in my care.

I liked this book and would recommend it to elementary teachers, but not secondary. it didn't apply to me as a high school teacher. I felt it was a little repetitive as well.

most importantly, the scenarios of how the teachers and school psychs. worked in the classrooms seemed unrealistic to me. superwoman status! some strategies were practical, especially the literacy tactics. those seemed feasible. overall it's worth it k-6.

This book was very informational and up to date with the current generation in our schools. I also liked how the author would compare and contrast a children with needs and a children without needs. She then would list suggestions that could be done in the classroom, which would not take much time to implement.

Overly broad and superficial information (often) with unrealistic expectations--as a school psychologist who has time to once a week for 45 minutes with a teacher about ONE child? While I appreciate that she is illustrating lots of ways that school psychologists can support the needs of children in school, it's presented in such a laissez faire manner that it can undermine the work that we already do in a more narrowly defined role that is common across the United States. It leaves the reader wi ...more
