I’ve taken the principles of trauma-informed practice and applied them through the lens of the why and how for school leaders every day.
If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful, or you can watch the session back here. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
I’ve had great feedback on the impact of this session. You are very welcome to pick it up and run with it in your own setting. Alternatively, if you’d like me to come and run a session like this for your setting or trust, please get in touch with Ellie who will help us to hatch a plan.
