The past year has been unusual and difficult for almost everyone. More than ever young people are struggling with the effects of trauma and it has an impact on them when they come to school. That is why it is so important, now more than ever, to be able to recognize the signs when a trauma reaction is occurring. It is also important to know some effective ways to respond when a student is having a trauma reaction and some strategies teachers can use to make their classrooms safe places for students.
