This two-year study by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) provides new evidence that an understanding of trauma sensitivity can lead to changes in practice and new ways of interacting with both students and with fellow staff members. In turn these new ways of thinking and changes in practice can serve as a foundation for school-wide culture change that enables students and their educators to feel safe and supported to learn and be successful.  We have had the joy of observing how these new ways of thinking and changing practices can become a regular part of the way the school is run, leading to learning environments that are characterized by  safety, connectedness, and holistic support for all students.
