About 1 in 4 school-aged children has experienced a traumatic event that can profoundly affect their development. The pandemic has placed increased pressure on schools to provide mental health support to students, while many teachers and staff report needing more training to recognize and respond to student needs.
Given these challenges, what can the research evidence tell us about strategies schools can implement to meet the needs of students coping with trauma and toxic levels of stress?
Join our lively discussion moderated by EdWeek’s Sarah Sparks. The panel will draw on the evidence in the EdResearch for Recovery brief, “Preparing Schools to Meet the Needs of Students Coping with Trauma and Toxic Stress.”
