Teacher training for dealing with students who have experienced trauma

In This WAMU article , my MCPS colleagues are discussing new ways to deal with complex trauma in the classroom.

We have so many new students fleeing violence in Central America who arrive in this country to live in unstable families. It manifests itself in so many ways in the classroom.

It’s good to see that there’s training for it. Can we have more?
