Description

It is increasingly challenging for teachers to educate without a deeper understanding of the experience of their students. This is particularly the case in marginalised groups of young people who are subject to loss, grief, trauma and shame. Through a snapshot of the diverse student populous, this book explores the impact of these experiences on a student's learning and success. Topics covered include poverty, obesity, incarceration, immigration, death, sexual exploitation, LGBT issues, psychodrama, the expressive arts, resilience, and military students. The authors share the children's perspective, and through case studies they offer solutions and viable objectives.

Reviews

'Once again, Linda Goldman has reached out across cultures to break down barriers and rally caregivers and educators to the aid of our most vulnerable citizens, children who are traumatically bereaved and in desperate need of trauma informed care. Those who serve and support these precious children now have an extraordinary resource to rely upon. It is an essential reference for teachers and caregivers and all those who yearn to profoundly impact - and quite possibly save - a child's life.'
- Bonnie Carroll, President and Founder of TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors)

'Linda Goldman has written yet another cutting-edge resource. This wide ranging book brings clarity and insight into relevant contemporary issues. This significant and practical resource is a wonderful asset for teachers, caregivers and those with the interest of marginalised children at heart.'
- John Holland, Author of Responding to Loss and Bereavement in Schools
