Children today deal with stress, trauma and violence. Making It Better: Activities for Children Living in a Stressful World explains trauma-informed education, an approach that recognizes the impact of traumatic stress on children and its effect on the growing brain, and applies the latest neurological research to teaching methods, disciplainary policies, and interactions to support grieving children.

This book responds to the learning and behavioral needs of children who have experienced traumatic events or toxic stress-such as natural disasters, community violence, or abuse or neglect within the child's familial relations-and includes a collection of more than 75 activities and strategies to help children heal and feel empowered.

Distressed children need absolute emotional securities and an opportunity to engage in healing activities. With your help, children can begin to build resiliency and find renewed hope for the future.
