In a recent post, I recommended a book - Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive ClassroomJan 29, 2016 by Kristin Souers and Pete Hall. The book opens by explaining doctors now recognize a certain number of childhood adverse experiences, equal trauma. Students impacted by addiction qualifies as an adverse student experience.
