This is an introduction to toxic stress and trauma, and basics of trauma-informed care.  It serves as a backdrop to the other recorded trainings on supporting marginalized students.


Marginalization is the exclusion of a disadvantaged person or group to the fringe of society.  It results in individuals being overlooked when laws, policies, and practices are established that protect the privileged class, and leads to adverse community environments (such as poverty, poor housing, and lack of mobility) that promote fertile ground for structural violence and harm (such as racism and disproportionate child welfare removals).  Children growing up in these environments are at risk for poor health and educational outcomes, the adoption of risky behaviors, and involvement with the child welfare and criminal justice systems.


This training will meet the following objectives:

  • Viewers will be able to explain what toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and trauma are, and how they impact learning.
  • Viewers will be able to explain what a stress response, hyperarousal and hyperarousal, and what trauma triggers are.
  • Viewers will be able to explain how resilience can be developed.
  • Viewers will be able to explain Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Six Key Principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach and begin to draw inferences regarding how they can be applied to education.
