            Creating Trauma-Informed Schools: A Guide for School Social Workers and Educators

            Children in all educational levels are vulnerable to abuse, neglect, bullying, violence in their homes and neighborhoods, and other traumatic life events; research shows that upwards of 70% of children in schools report experiencing at least one traumatic event before age 16. Tho...ugh school social workers are on the front lines of service delivery through their work with children who face social and emotional struggles in the pursuit of education, there are scant resources to assist them in the creation of trauma-informed schools. This book presents an overview of the impact of trauma on children and adolescents, in addition to interventions for direct practice and collaboration with teachers, families, and communities. Social work practitioners and students will learn distinct examples of how to implement the ten principles of trauma-informed services in their schools; provide students with trauma-informed care that is grounded in the principles of safety, connection, and emotional regulation; and develop beneficial skills for self-care in their work.

            The Art of Listening in Coaching and Mentoring

            This book answers a number of fundamental questions about listening in coaching and mentoring. What difference does being heard make to the speaker? How does it have that effect? What are the necessary components of good listening? How do you evaluate your practice as a listener ...and how do you improve? The process of writing this book led the author to look closely at his own practice, test, experiment, and push his listening to a higher level. He invites the reader to do the same. This book identifies what it takes to listen well - the skills, mind-set, presence, self-awareness and self-management - and why it can be hard. It demonstrates how four modes of listening - attention, inquiry, observation and use of self - all contribute to the listener's understanding and to the speaker's awareness. It argues that we all have a `learning edge' as listeners and provides a framework that helps each of us find it. The book is intended as a companion for anyone who commits to becoming a good listener. It shows how to develop expertise in the four modes of listening. It offers examples and principles to guide practice, questions for reflection, and a series of `workouts' to help the listener develop their ability to listen. It encourages by showing how good listening is simple - you turn up, pay attention and listen with all you have, and it challenges by identifying the work it takes to do that.

            Promoting Young People's Wellbeing through Empowerment and Agency: A Critical Framework for Practice (Paperback)

            The terms 'wellbeing', 'empowerment' and 'agency' are common parlance in policy and practice in social services, yet are often misused or not fully understood. Further, there is a disconnect between these abstract concepts and tangible practice with young people. This book bridge...s the theory-practice divide, offering a clear and definitive guide to concepts and practical ways to develop young people's wellbeing. It examines the concept of wellbeing and its intrinsic relationship to social justice both theoretically and through case study material, and locates these practices within critical pedagogy. The book highlights a range of practice with young people of various ages, in formal and non-formal learning situations, engaged in a range of different programmes including learning, reduction from offending, social action and tackling targeted needs. Each chapter highlights relevant policy, research and practice examples to ensure that the book is relevant to a variety of readers. This book will benefit students and practitioners who work with young people to realise wellbeing and to embed critical pedagogy in their practice. It also provides a frame of reference to critically engage in policy analysis and is essential reading for social workers, teachers, police support officers and anyone working to empower young people.
