It combines their insights with easy to implement tools, worksheets and resources drawing on proven Restorative Practice, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approaches. It will provide you with a fresh perspective - to see what is really going on in your classroom - and will give you the confidence to provide the support your students really need in order to thrive.

Press Reviews

  • Dr. Lori Desautels Assistant Professor at Butler University and author of "Intentional Neuroplasticity, Moving our Nervous Systems and Educational System Toward Post traumatic Growth."

    Our autonomic nervous system is the engine that runs the body and is intimately impacted by adversities and trauma. In this new book, there are powerful practices that address the whole child, reaching for ways that address what lies beneath behaviors so that students are experiencing conditions of felt safety.
  • Rebecca Brooks, Education Policy Advisor, Adoption UK

    Amid a growing interest in trauma-informed approaches, this book draws on the lived experience of education professionals to present a new and compelling viewpoint on the complex interplay of relationships and perspectives in the classroom. Essential reading.
