Trauma-Sensitive Tools for the 2020-2021 School Year

Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, our schools and education system have experienced a collective trauma on a global scale.

Overnight, students across the world went from brick-and-mortar classrooms to at-home learning in virtual spaces and modified on-campus learning environments. And troublingly, many of us don’t know when or even if we will go back to the way our classrooms thrived pre-pandemic.

This Trauma-Sensitive Toolkit is designed as a resource for educators, mental health professionals, and families to help:

  • Understand ways that trauma may present in children and teens in various settings at home and within the online learning space, including anxiety, hopelessness, withdrawal, irritability, depression, and exhaustion.

  • Equip you with accessible 7 yoga and mindfulness tools to support your children and teens through the effects of trauma, and

  • Identify the compounding effects of multiple collective traumas on vulnerable youth, including marginalized, disabled, and/or disenfranchised individuals and communities.
