Trauma-Informed Programs & Practices for Schools (TIPPS)
Trauma-Informed Programs & Practices for Schools (TIPPS) Project recently released some resources that might be helpful as schools strive to implement trauma-informed practices and strategies.
The TIPPS Program Guide gives school and district leaders, teachers, and other professional staff a comprehensive overview of trauma-informed schools. The guide provides background on adversity, trauma, and the role of schools by addressing the following questions:
- What is childhood adversity and trauma?
- What is resilience?
- How can schools help promote resilience and healing in students
- impacted by trauma?
- What is a “system” approach to trauma-informed schools and
- what differentiates this approach from other approaches?
