Regardless of the form of trauma a child experiences, it will have a lasting impact on their well-being. A child's physical and mental health are at stake as they try to learn how to cope with upsetting and tragic situations. As educators, we must provide the necessary learning and emotional support to our students who have gone through the unimaginable. One of the best ways to create a trauma-sensitive environment is by adopting a trauma-informed program.
