DESCRIPTION: We have students in our schools who have great difficulty behaving. Sometimes they have meltdowns that come “out of the blue”. These students are unpredictable and as a result also have difficulty with social interactions. It seems to take very little to provoke them into acting in ways that hurt other students. Some of these students also have academic difficulties. We have long sought reasons for such behaviour and learning difficulties. In Part I of this two part series, I will review what the neuroscience of complex trauma tells us about these students. We will delve into how the brain is directly affected by adverse childhood experiences. We will then look at the source of most adverse childhood experiences: experiencing too much separation, and how this too affects their behaviour. 

Then join me for

Part II: Trauma-informed Interventions. 

Once we understand what is going on for these students, we will then better understand why some interventions are more likely to be successful, why other interventions rarely work, and why others should be entirely avoided.
