This book is remarkably well-written, easy to read, and accessible for schools wanting to implement a trauma informed practice. It has wonderful little stories at the end of each chapter illustrating the concepts in action. It gives a timeline and checklists of tasks to guide implementation. Most importantly, it espouses a philosophy of caring for the whole person, not just a student in one class in isolation. I believe in trauma informed practices not just because of this book, but because I se ...more

Easily the most informational, organized, and practical approach to implementing a Trauma-Informed model in schools. It's definitely geared toward secondary schools but the majority of it works perfectly in an elementary school context as well. This is a book I will hang on to and refer to for a long time. ...more

This is a must read for all school personnel! As we gain knowledge of how trauma affects the brain, it is the responsibility of school personnel to adapt the way we work with traumatized (really all) children. This book gives steps on how to implement a trauma informed school. Watching Paper Tigers will help you understand the importance of the guidelines discussed in this book.

This book was very informative and full of easy to implement strategies for students that have experienced trauma. I’ll definitely go back to it during the school year. I particularly liked the real life stories and situations presented in the book.

Very informative! It is designed more for Administration to start up a Trauma-Informed School, but it did give strategies to think about implementing. The example stories were helpful to picture "how" this might work in certain situations. ...more

Excellent book that should be required reading whether you work in a school where trauma is an issue or not. Well laid-out and a relatively quick read for the level of information provided. Backed with the brain science to support their suggested approach.
