While we often associate trauma with returning veterans, or victims of physical or sexual assault, studies have found that as many as 65-85% of students have been exposed to traumatic events by the time they are college age, with many experiencing repeated developmental trauma due to war, poverty, persecution, toxic stress, violence, displacement or adverse childhood experiences (Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study).
Following on the work of medical and criminal justice institutions to create a trauma Informed approach within their environments, there is a surge toward adapting these approaches in the classroom and in academic institutions as a whole. It is our challenge to recognize how the effects of these trauma experiences may collide with the structure and demands of higher education. We can begin to remove the barriers to their success and avoid re-traumatization by understanding and recognizing signs of trauma in our students and developing a trauma-informed classroom.
It is vital that educators understand the pervasiveness of trauma in student populations and create new strategies and considerations for educating these students. Increased awareness of how trauma affects performance and behavior allows educators to develop a trauma-informed approach, in order to create a safe and accessible learning environment where students can succeed.
