In times of collective trauma, such as the global pandemic the world is currently experiencing, many students will exhibit symptoms of chronic stress—misdirected anger, a lack of confidence, and disengagement from school. At the same time, many teachers are not trained with tools and strategies to help their students deal with this stress and trauma. The unintended consequence is that students are not able to learn because it is difficult for them to focus.
