Heidy with a WHY, Inc.
Trauma impacts our students more than we may realize. What if we gave teachers strategies to build relationships with their students instead of telling them to do so. What if we hosted professional development so they could learn strategies to better work with kids who have been traumatized, are misunderstood and those who take frequent detours for what's expected? Social Emotional Learning is the FOUNDATION for all other learning.
Those Kids is a dynamic, powerful, necessary and practical read for anyone working with kids of any age. Based on a true story of trauma, this book will not only change your life and perspective, it will offer you over 26 strategies to work with "Those Kids" who are dying for your understanding and compassion. "Those Kids" may have been traumatized, are misunderstood and may take frequent detours from what's expected, but they are OUR KIDS. In college, we learn how to teach content, but we barely touch how to teach human beings, especially those who struggle emotionally. THIS is the foundation educators & parents are looking for. Also check out the Those Kids study guide for quick, powerful & practicals steps for understanding and working through trauma.
