"A needed book, providing background and important guidance to schools, youth serving systems and families on ways to foster positive school and social adjustment for students experiencing trauma. Editors and leading school psychologists Rossen and Hull should be commended for this timely and important volume." -- Mark D. Weist, Ph.D., Professor, University of South Carolina
"Every day, in every school there are students who have been exposed to trauma. This book provides an excellent introduction to help school professionals understand the impact of such experiences, along with practical and accessible strategies for students. This is a must read for all educators with resources provided for additional information for those who will provide more in-depth support for specific experiences. I will make this book required reading for all our staff who work in schools to heighten their awareness of and support to students in the field." -- Deborah Johnson, Ed.D., Children's Institute, Director of National Services
"Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students makes a compelling argument to adapt new models for social emotional learning so that every educator is equipped to handle the stress and trauma of modern childhood." -- Scott Bloom, LCSW, Director of School Mental Health Services, Office of School Health, New York City Department of Education
"Schools have unique opportunities to help children who are victims of traumatic stress due to natural disasters, community violence or loss of a loved one. This book offers a comprehensive look at the effects of traumatic stress on children and discusses practical ways that schools can help them, utilizing already existing resources. It is an empowering source of information for teachers, school administrators, and mental health professionals who work in schools." -- Lois T. Flaherty, M.D., Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Editor of Adolescent Psychiatry, and Chair of the University of Maryland Center for School Mental Health Advisory Board
"The authors do an excellent job of summarizing the key findings from the research on exposure to chronic community violence, particularly among urban, minority youth. They also offer an understandable and intuitively appealing model of the mechanisms by which exposure to chronic community might impact student attitudes and behavior in the classroom. The clear and concrete ties the authors make between student performance and exposure to chronic community violence will likely increase teacher recognition of their role in mitigating its impact. The strategies they offer teachers are appealing and appear easy to implement." -- Nicholas Ialongo, Professor of Mental Health, Center for Prevention and Early Intervention, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University
"This book is written to empower educators with practical skills and strategies for supporting children and teens with a variety of traumatic experiences throughout the school day... For anyone with the goal of helping young people learn and succeed within difficult circumstances, this is a must-have." -Erica Rich, The Resource: The National Sexual Violence Resource Center's Newsletter
"...This book exceeds the promise of its title, as this is far more than a guide. It is a comprehensive tool that provides insightful descriptions of the experience of trauma; detailed data; frameworks for understanding; and peer-reviewed and innovative approaches to advocate for students, assist teachers, and directly implement supports to students. School psychologists will find it informative and return to it periodically as a readily available and useful source." --Communiqué

This book is well-written and very organized. Your level of understanding about the subject matter will greatly increase. It also provides additional references at the end of the chapters which I thought was extremely helpful. There is no doubt in my mind that these authors work first-hand with students who have experienced unimaginable events in their lives. After you read this book, you will definitely walk away feeling more empowered to better teach and help your students not only learn, but better handle difficulties that may arise in their young lives. It is definitely money well spent.
