We use the term 'trauma informed' in education ALOT - but what does it actually look, sound and feel like on the ground in the classroom?

Trauma informed practices centre more around a state of 'being, rather than doing' and it comes back to our own nervous system regulation, and our ability to "See the child NOT the behaviour." It means that we use responsive practices, rather than punitive. We also fundamentally know that our role is to offer behaviour support, not sanctions when kids are distressed or overwhelmed.
