Twenty-first century classrooms are diverse in nature and everchanging. Students enter classrooms with many experiences, both positive and negative, that influence and affect their ability to learn. More specifically, children who have experienced trauma often struggle socially, emotionally, and academically. Unfortunately, many educators are not adequately trained to identify the signs of trauma in children. In fact, they may misinterpret the outward behavioral manifestations of trauma as other conduct disorders.

Strategies and Methods for Implementing Trauma-Informed Pedagogy is a critical reference book that helps teachers and administrators identify manifestations of trauma in children and explain the characteristics and classroom interventions and resources that can aid educators in supporting students who have experienced trauma. This text explains the effects of trauma and the ways in which it manifests in children, explores resources and community options to support children who have experienced trauma, presents strategies to help students who have experienced trauma to learn in the classroom, and teaches the management of behaviors in positive ways to cultivate a community of learners. Covering topics such as positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS), racial trauma, and student classroom behavior, this text is essential for classroom teachers, teachers in training, school counselors, school psychologists, preservice teachers, administrators, researchers, and academicians.
