This book provides foundational knowledge on trauma and how the effects are stored in our bodies. A must-read for therapists, social workers, educators, and anyone working with people dealing with people who have experienced trauma.
Dr. Perry takes us through a series of cases he has worked with, and provides a wonderful mix of brain science and practical application. Another must-read.
A wonderful resource for educators. Filled with practical things you can do in school to become more trauma-informed.
Another wonderful resource for educators. I pull a lot of examples from this book when I'm doing trainings.
A must-read if you are doing Mindfulness in your school. I recommend reading this prior to any implementation, as the author discusses how Mindfulness implemented without proper care has the potential to cause harm.
Great book for parents, educators, or anyone interacting with kids!
Seriously-anything by Brene Brown. She's simply a treasure and I guarantee you'll grow from reading her work. My personal favorites are Daring Greatly and Dare to Lead.
Wonderful, scientific explanation of the benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation.
This is one of the most practical, life-changing books I've read. You will develop amazing listening and communication strategies.
