These will be updated regularly as I come across additional resources that I believe could be helpful.The following are a few of my favorites.

Websites & Organizations

The Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative

They offer free downloads on their website. Two I believe are essential to this work include:

Helping Traumatized Children Learn: Volume 1

Helping Traumatized Children Learn: Volume 2

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network

The site is full of resources. Given my work with schools, I recommend the resources for school personnel.
