In this stirring follow-up to the award-winning Fostering Resilient Learners, Kristin Van Marter Souers and Pete Hall take you to the next level of trauma-invested practice. To get there, they explain, educators need to build a “nest” – a positive learning environment shaped by three new Rs of education: relationship, responsibility and regulation.

Drawing from their extensive experience working with schools, students and families throughout the country, the authors

  • explain how to create a culture of safety in which everyone feels valued, important and capable of learning

  • describe the four areas of need – emotional, relational, physical and control – that drive student behaviours and show how to meet these needs with interventions frame around the new three Rs

  • illustrate trauma-invested practices in action through real scenarios that identify students’ unmet needs, examine the situation from five stakeholder perspectives and suggest interventions to support students and their families

  • offer opportunities to challenge your beliefs and develop deeper and different ways of thinking about your role in your students’ lives.

Educators have a unique opportunity to influence students’ learning, attitudes and futures. This book will invigorate your practice and equip you to empower those you serve – whatever their personal histories.
