Some students face challenging situations outside of school that they aren’t equipped to handle. In order to create a productive classroom environment, educators must help these students unpack their trauma and feel safe.

In this TeacherTalk, members of our LifeChanger community will show you how to identify different types of trauma, and how you can help students develop the necessary coping skills to deal with trauma.
