As someone who desperately wanted to help my students who had experienced hard things, I understand the desperation that many teachers feel as they watch students funneled through a system that does nothing to help (and in many ways hurts the child more). I found myself desperate because I cared deeply for students but had no idea how to care in a way that would make a difference in the trajectory of their lives.
I ultimately went on a journey culminating in my PhD in STEM Education with a dissertation in trauma-informed education and the preschool-to-prison pipeline. I have condensed thousands of hours of reading thousands of pages of research and hundreds of hours spent on my own research (and my 300 page dissertation) into this easy-to-read, practical guide to disrupting the pipeline through trauma-informed education.
This book will walk you through:
Understanding trauma and how it intersects with the preschool-to-prison pipeline
Learning about the "why" behind many of the behaviors that lead to discipline referrals
Practical implementation strategies to work with students who have experienced trauma and how these strategies work toward disrupting the pipeline
Holistic views on trauma-informed schools and how they reduce the risk of negative life outcomes for our students
Understanding the system and how adults (including well-meaning ones like you and me) can contribute to the pipeline (and strategies to aid in disruption based on our own perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs that contribute)
