Summary

In this galvanizing audiobook for all educators, Kristin Souers and Pete Hall explore an urgent and growing issue - childhood trauma - and its profound effect on learning and teaching.  

Grounded in research and the authors' experience working with trauma-affected students and their teachers, Fostering Resilient Learners will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. The authors - a mental health therapist and a veteran principal - provide proven, reliable strategies to help you:  

  • Understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom.  
  • Build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels.  
  • Adopt a strengths-based approach that leads you to recalibrate how you view destructive student behaviors and to perceive what students need to break negative cycles.  
  • Head off frustration and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish.

All schools need this book

This book provides a great oversight of what trauma informed practice looks and feels like. School would be a much happier place for children that have experienced developmental trauma if adults used the approaches in this book. Highly recommend.

EMPOWERING

I loved this book. I felt like it was written for me personally. I could relate to every concept. I found out things about myself that had been hidden, and most importantly I gained tools to be an ever better educator and make a difference in the lives of the students that I encounter.

great introduction for teachers

This book used a lot of great analogies and ways to better understand trauma in the classroom. Fantastic to listen to, though I might need to purchase a paper copy to reference specific sections and activities again!

Well thought out

This book was everything I hoped it would be. It was a great read and I’m going to apply much of what I learned into my classroom this coming year. This would be a great all staff read!

Informative!

The book included some helpful information and strategies. I found some parts a bit unrealistic and not practical in practice but can't knock until you try it.
