February 2020: School Success Resource of the Month
Healthy and Ready to Learn has recently collaborated with NYS-TEACHS to produce a 5-minute video called, Supporting Students in Temporary Housing: Trauma-Sensitive Practices.
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.
