    Bonus Episode: Trauma Informed Practice - FAQs

    Bonus Episode: Trauma Informed Practice - FAQs

    Recently we facilitated this webinar on trauma-informed practice. We had a huge response and during the Q&A we received more than 70 questions - far too many to cover in our 1- hour session!

    It was clear that the topic you were most interested in hearing about was behaviour management strategies. We heard you! As promised, we took those questions to our experts and we’ve recorded this podcast episode to answer some of them. 

    [Behaviour Resources]

    “Sitting down and reasoning is quite often very challenging for kids who have experienced trauma, and you need the foundational aspects of your relationships with educators and with others and capacity to regulate as well before you get to that higher order functioning skill of being able to reason.” - Dr Emily Berger.

    As you’ll hear in the recording, research shows that students who have experienced trauma have diverse needs when it comes to emotional regulation. 

    Our behaviour management collection contains resources, blogs, and podcasts to support your trauma informed practice. 

    Catch up on the original Q&A webinar here.

    Professor Martin and Dr Berger's template for a school trauma-informed practice policy is available here.

    Fine Motor Activities for Little Hands Over the Break

    As adults we know that feeling of picking up a pen for the first time in a while (say, after the glorious summer school holidays!). Kids can often let their fine motor skills lapse over the lengthy summer break. Today we're giving you ideas for helping your students head into the break with some excellent fine motor skills, and some fun things they can do at home to retain them!

Great for Aussie teachers

Really love the diverse range of topics and interviewees! Favourite episode so far is the sustainability in the classroom episode.

Terrible

This podcast is ridiculous. The hosts are obviously having a great time because they are laughing the whole time whilst literally either stating the obvious or saying nothing.

Insightful & interesting!

Great interviews, with really interesting guests. Will definitely share with friends :)
