Traumatized or victimized children often have difficulty at school with learning and social interactions. They often express feelings of anger, fear, and guilt in appropriate ways and educators and staff don’t always know how to respond.
The Child Abuse Prevention Sourcebook for Florida School Personnel is an excellent resource for schools on both reporting abuse and supporting students who have been victimized.
See the attached Safety Brief on Supporting Students who have been Victimized for a summary of tips from the Sourcebook.
