Karen Clemmer Shares Multidimensional Poverty Report - What Do You Think?

Holly White-Wolfe ·
I just found this very compelling report from the Brookings Institution which describes multidimensional poverty. As I was reading the report, I reflected on our conversations about whether ACES impact certain groups differently (e.g. Latino population in Sonoma County). Maybe this report brings us closer to understanding this dynamic? Multidimensional (compounded?) poverty seems to be a significant construct, which I had not previously understood. See what you think! Karen ...

When Schools Meet Trauma With Understanding, Not Discipline A brief excerpt: "...schools, because they have so many children dealing with many different issues, often don't think about the reasons behind behaviors. Mental health workers, like her, though, have learned a lot recently about how trauma changes the brain. "A kid who's been exposed to trauma ... that fight or flight...

Re: When Schools Meet Trauma With Understanding, Not Discipline

Jessie Wetmore ·
Hi Holly, I completely agree that discipline is not the answer to treating or healing trauma. Another example of this is when administrators take recess away from children who have 'behavior issues'. As we know, when we punish children by taking away recess for example, they negative behavior increases. Children, adolescents, and even adults need someone supportive to talk to, especially after a traumatic event. I love hearing new positive methods like this and I do believe some of these...
