Trauma-Sensitive School Checklist
A trauma-sensitive school is a safe and respectful environment that enables students to build caring relationships with adults and peers, self-regulate their emotions and behaviors, and succeed academically, while supporting their physical health and well-being.
This easy-to-use checklist from Lesley University and the Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative (TPLI), will help you assess where you are and where you need to go in creating a trauma-sensitive school.
It is broken into 5 categories:
- School-wide Policies and Practices
- Classroom Strategies and Techniques
- Collaborations and Linkages with Mental Health
- Family Partnerships
- Community Linkages
