Publisher's Summary

From the author of Mindfulness for Teachers, a guide to supporting trauma-exposed students.

Fully half the students in US schools have experienced trauma, violence, or chronic stress. In the face of this epidemic, it falls increasingly to teachers to provide the adult support these students need to function in school. But most educators have received little training to prepare them for this role. 

In this audio edition of her new book, Tish Jennings, an internationally recognized leader in the field of social and emotional learning, shares research and experiential knowledge about the practices that support students' healing, build their resilience, and foster compassion in the classroom. In part I, Jennings describes the effects of trauma on body and mind, and how to recognize them in students' behavior. In part II, she introduces the trauma-sensitive practices she has implemented in her work with schools. And in part III, she connects the dots between mindfulness, compassion, and resilience. Each chapter contains easy-to-use, practical activities to hone the skills needed to create a compassionate learning environment.

The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom is expertly narrated by Camille Mazant. All activities referenced in the audiobook are included in the supplementary PDF.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic Read

I enjoyed the stories to relate real situations to the learning experience. The connection between real life and classroom make understanding the material easy. As a nurse who is now teaching I loved the differentiation between trauma sensitive and trauma informed, as it can often be interchangeable for those who are unaware of the difference. I would highly recommend this book to an Educator who is wanting to make a better connection and build a more trusting rapport with students.

Easier than reading the book

I started to read the book and it was slow. I decided to listen and follow along with the book, much easier. I feel the material did not fit with my situation. I would have preferred more realistic examples to help with the understanding.
