Research indicates a need for pre-service teachers to become trauma informed, as mental health issues are on the rise. This study examined trauma informed indicators in higher education teacher preparation programs, as well as in pre-service educators’ classroom behavior management plans. This was to determine in what ways, if any, would this information increase knowledge of how preservice educators are prepared for trauma informed practices in schools. The quantitative research portion included a small sample of preservice teacher classroom behavior management plans that were analyzed for the use of trauma informed indicators. The qualitative portion included clinical instructor interviews that were examined for trauma informed indicators. Results found while trauma indicators were present in both interviews and classroom behavior management plans, a continued need for training regarding trauma informed indicators exists.
