The purpose of my project is to help alternative education teachers explore the impact of complex trauma and attachment disruption on classroom learning and behaviours. I have created a power point presentation that I will use to introduce teachers to the topic of complex trauma and the associated domains of impairment. The power point also provides an introduction to trauma informed teaching practices. In addition, I have created a manual that lists potential complex trauma responses under the domains of impairment introduced in the power point. The manual also expands on trauma informed teaching considerations and includes a series of lessons designed to help support students who struggle with affect regulation. Lastly, I have included a supplemental reading list for those who wish to explore the topic further. --Leaf 4.
