Trauma Responsive Schools Theory of Change Toolkit

The Trauma Responsive Schools Theory of Change Toolkit is designed to guide users to develop a plan and to organize efforts to meet evidence-based practice standards in creating trauma responsive schools. The toolkit integrates knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices. Throughout, it aims to avoid re-traumatization. The toolkit provides an action-oriented guide for school administrators, staff, and teachers, along with community systems that serve children, youth, and families, to apply the Trauma Responsive Schools Theory of Change.

Trauma Responsive Schools Theory of Change is based on three features:

    
  1. Preconditions that are necessary to achieve trauma-responsive schools
  2. Indicators to assess the status of each precondition
  3. Interventions to achieve each precondition


The toolkit aims to describe each precondition, offer approaches to assessing indicators, and provide guidance on approaches to intervention.
