Dropout Prevention Strategies for Wounded Students
Many high-risk students carry “wounds” with them as they head to school each day. These wounds are evident in their relationships among friends and family and in their interactions within their communities. These wounds are the result of trauma, many times experienced in the form of poverty, abuse, violence, loss, and family dysfunction. Research shows that these sources of trauma have a direct effect on cognitive function, emotional health, and interpersonal capacity. This training will equip educators, counselors, and administrators with trauma-informed policies and approaches to their work that will not only move wounded youth toward healing, but will have a positive effect on overall student achievement and performance.
