Book Review: The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom: Building Resilience with Compassionate Teaching

Sarah E Ryan


A guide to trauma-sensitive K-12 teaching might not seem an obvious reference for a college Communication Center. But this book, The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom, offers the tools we need to help college students regain their footing at the end of 2021, a year of intense change and trauma. Broadly, the book is a reminder that trauma is widespread among our students and colleagues, and that Communication Centers can serve as resources and allies to traumatized members of our communities. Patricia Jennings offers us terminology, assessments, checklists, and practices for a mindful approach to this work.
