Why We Need Trauma Sensitive Schools Video


We are pleased to share our new video “Why We Need Trauma-Sensitive Schools


There are a growing number of schools throughout Massachusetts, the United States, and the world engaged in the work of creating trauma-sensitive schools.  This video features one such school, the Baker School in Brockton, MA.

The Baker is one of several schools in Brockton that are becoming trauma-sensitive through a concerted, well supported district-wide effort.   This video highlights the importance of leadership—superintendents, assistant superintendents-principals, and educators—in creating the understanding and infrastructure that can support the team work among staff needed to support all children to be successful.

As one school staff member explains “Every child belongs to everyone and when kids feel that, the kids and teachers are happy.” To view the full video click here
