Description


This important resource helps educators understand how trauma and stress interfere with cognitive skills, and how classroom and school activities can be used to restore feelings of safety, empowerment, and well-being.

A child in distress, will experience problems with attending, focusing, retaining, and recalling information--all critical functions. This book provides a wealth of activities that can actually reduce anxiety in children which research has clearly shown can lead to healthier cognitive functions as well as behavioral stability.

Neglect, abuse, and homelessness have altered the way many children relate to one another their families, and teachers. Through her examination of the neurological research and brain development literature, Oehlberg helps illuminate the understanding of the causes of our students' lack of attention and destructive behaviors.

With the wisdom in this important work, teachers can help our children develop new strategies for successful living in a stressful world."
