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.
