Calmer classrooms - A guide to working with traumatised children

The role of teachers in the lives of traumatised children cannot be underestimated. This booklet from the Child Safety Commissioner, Victoria encourages teachers and other school personnel to forge vital attachments to traumatised children through two key mechanisms: understanding traumatised children and developing relationshipbased skills to help them. Teachers who understand the effects of trauma on children’s education, who are able to develop teaching practices to help them, and who are able to participate actively and collaboratively in the systems designed to support traumatised children will not only improve their educational outcomes but will assist in their healing and recovery.
