Trauma Informed Classrooms
According to the Fourth Sustainable Development Goal (Quality Education), ‘more than half of children and adolescents worldwide are not meeting minimum proficiency standards in reading and mathematics. Refocused efforts are needed to improve the quality of education’.
Improving education is not just about equipping teachers in literacy techniques, but understanding how children develop. One of the greatest impediments to a child learning is trauma. Creating trauma-informed classrooms has shown to improve test scores dramatically, particularity in areas of the world where trauma is most prevalent. Karen Del Rio is a social innovator with a deep understanding of the brain, trauma and how to create environments that help traumatized children learn. In addition, she is running Loom’s Celebrating Children Workshop (CCW) around the world and is an expert at multiplying the curriculum.
PLEASE PRAY FOR:
- Continued impact from Karen’s most recent CCW training in Juarez, Mexico
- Long-term adoption of trauma-informed practices in schools where trauma is prevalent
