CALMER CLASSROOMS: A GUIDE TO WORKING WITH TRAUMATISED CHILDREN

The Victorian Child Safety Commissioner published a guide titled "Calmer Classrooms: A guide to working with traumatised children" back in 2007, but we think it's worth revisiting. While the guide focuses on educational settings, the principles apply to any setting involving young people, especially those which involve group work.  The guide looks at the impacts of trauma and abuse, and goes on to describe strategies to create connection and defuse conflict as well as information on self-care for people working with traumatised young people.
