Trauma-Informed Practices and Teen Dating Violence
Students are affected by violence in many ways and it disproportionately affects student of color, students from certain religious backgrounds, and LGBTQ students.
This combined EEI explores the topic from two perspectives. First, we look at the broader issue of students who experience trauma outside of school and how it affects their ability to learn in school. Second, we delve into the harder area of teen dating violence, where students may not recognize bad relationships or potential threats to their safety until it is too late. Students who do not feel safe cannot learn.
We hope this EEI helps educators recognize signs of violence and provides strategies they can use to help their students.
