THE STATISTICS ARE STAGGERING. The impact of trauma on our children, families, and communities is overwhelming. Students impacted by trauma find it especially difficult to succeed. Yet, it doesn't have to be this way. It's possible to create change that will allow every student to learn and grow, to be successful in school and life.

The key factors for change include:
- Relationships with students
- Knowledge of "self "
- School culture/climate
- Instruction design
- Positive behavior interventions and supports
- Policies and procedures

In Trauma and Postsecondary Success, Dr. Plashan McCune shares the major factors that will ignite change for trauma-impacted students. She explains stakeholders' roles in changing the trauma-drama, and she provides educators, parents, and communities with tools and insights to uncover new ways of looking at students and their behaviors, providing fertile soil for positive sustainable change.
