In this stirring follow-up to the award-winning Fostering Resilient Learners, Kristin Van Marter Souers and Pete Hall take you to the next level of trauma-invested practice. To get there, they explain, educators need to build a “”nest””—a positive learning environment shaped by three new Rs of education: relationship, responsibility, and regulation.
Drawing from their extensive experience working with schools, students, and families throughout the country, the authors
- Explain how to create a culture of safety in which everyone feels valued, important, and capable of learning.
- Describe the four areas of need—emotional, relational, physical, and control—that drive student behaviors and show how to meet these needs with interventions framed around the new three Rs.
- Illustrate trauma-invested practices in action through real scenarios that identify students’ unmet needs, examine the situation from five stakeholder perspectives, and suggest interventions to support students and their families.
- Offer opportunities to challenge your beliefs and develop deeper and different ways of thinking about your role in your students’ lives.
Educators have a unique opportunity to influence students’ learning, attitudes, and futures. This book will invigorate your practice and equip you to empower those you serve—whatever their personal histories.
