My first book, Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education, is coming out on May 25 from W.W. Norton. Pre-order is live!

Trauma-informed education and equity in education are often seen as two different initiatives. In reality, educational equity reduces the presence of trauma, and trauma-informed practice can help foster equity. In my book, I explore the myriad connections and intersections between equity and trauma-informed education, and propose principles for educators who want to make this integrated approach the heart of their practice.

To learn more about what’s in the book, you can watch this recording of the Trauma Informed Educators Network podcast episode where I discuss the book with principal and trauma-informed advocate Mathew Portell.
