Trauma Videos

Promotion of school-wide trauma-sensitive practices can help students feel safe and secure in the classroom. Our videos explain how exposure to adverse childhood events (ACEs) can impact a child in the classroom and beyond, and suggest strategies for teachers and school administrators. Pair these videos with our highlighted resources to learn more about trauma and additional strategies that support students in the classroom.

Students who have been exposed to traumatic events need supportive adults to help build coping skills and promote resilience. Particularly for students living in temporary housing, building a secure and trusting relationship with supportive adults can help reduce the negative effects of trauma. This video promotes specific strategies school staff can use to build positive relationships with students and families living in temporary housing. This video was created in collaboration with NYS-TEACHS, a project of Advocates for Children of New York.
