Mathew Portell on transitioning to trauma-informed practices

Updated: Apr 2, 2019


Earlier this year Edutopia published, “An Inside Look at Trauma-Informed Practices” about Fall-Hamilton Elementary School and their comprehensive approach to trauma-informed practices, creating a space where their students feel known and supported. 


“The old approach was you’re at school, you need to be at school and play school and it was compliance driven. But the trauma approach is taking a completely different lens. They have to feel safe, they have to feel nurtured and they have to feel supported.” - Mathew Portell We are thrilled Mathew will be joining us in January for our Conference: Towards Trauma-informed Practices in Northamptonshire.
