Trauma-Attuned Response: How to Structure Conversations after Acts of Violence

  • Safety refers to the rules and structures that are in place to protect us. Before talking to children about an event take time to collect information relating to the rules of said event.
  • Security refers to routines, objects, and relationships that make us feel safe and cared for. Routines provide a sense of control and expectation that helps to ward off the negative aspects of anxiety and trauma.
  • Confidence has a positive impact on a child’s, attitude, affective and even socio-emotional growth. Students look to the adults in their lives for guidance on how to respond to stressful situations.
