Creating School Policies That Support Students Dealing with Grief

Recognizing the essential need for trauma-informed educational institutions stems from the understanding that trauma significantly hinders students’ learning capabilities and active engagement in academic and social settings. School leaders have increasingly embraced the development of trauma-informed spaces to enable students who have encountered trauma to excel and prosper. While death can have a profound impact on individuals across all age groups, its effects are particularly daunting for young individuals to process. Schools that not only prioritize trauma awareness but also integrate grief-sensitive practices are better equipped to aid students during their most vulnerable moments.
