Brief Counseling Techniques that Work

In 15-Minute Focus: Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences, Dr. Melissa Louvar Reeves gives counselors and educators a primer on how to support students who have experienced trauma.

Trauma interferes with the executive functions required to be successful in the classroom; and it impacts our ability to trust our environment and others. In this book, Reeves explains trauma and the overlap with anxiety, and provides understanding for behaviors associated with trauma and why they occur, along with a variety of strategies for school mental health professionals, educators, and administrators.

What you’ll get:

  • Identification of the different types of stress and symptoms that accompany trauma exposure
  • Explanation of commonalities between externalizing disorders and trauma and stressor related disorders
  • Practical strategies for school mental health professionals, educators, administrators, and parents
  • Curated list of resources, including organizations, training, curriculum, books, and more!

 

This guide will provide school counselors, educators, and administrators with an increased understanding regarding trauma and effective interventions to provide better supports that facilitate growth and achievement in all areas of life.

Trauma is something we all experience but many educators are just learning about what trauma is and how it effects learning. I found this book to be a quick, but good read of what trauma and ACES are. I loved how it took you through what you could do to improve the culture of the school community from classroom structure to interventions and response. The points to consider also allow you to evaluate your own processes and procedures. I highly recommend.

A must have for anyone working with someone who struggles with trauma. Excellent resource and easy to read. I highly recommend this series and think you will soon find the pages being worn from so much use. I have already let a teacher borrow my copy.

As educators & counselors we must be equipped to help children with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which are significant events that could potentially have a long lasting impact on a person’s health, behavioral choices, and overall quality of life. This awesome resource published by the National Center for Youth Issues provides easy to understand definitions, techniques and strategies – awesome for educators, counselors and administrators!
