Adolescence is a period of enormous growth and change where the typically developing teenager has to navigate a growing need for autonomy, a journey of self-discovery and an innate desire and drive to belong.
Considering this, it is clear that the adolescent journey into adult hood is already difficult. Add a history of trauma to the demands and struggles of this developmental stage and the journey becomes increasingly more complex.
Research informs us that over 50% of all children will have experienced a traumatic event by the time they reach adulthood. (Copeland, W.E. et al, 2007) The impact of trauma often leaves the child stuck in a survival loop, diminishing their capacity to regulate their emotions and behaviour. They no longer feel safe. This dramatically reduces their capacity to access learning and the curriculum.
Trauma informed schools promote feelings of physical, social and emotional safety in children.
