About The Thoughtful Schools Program

The Thoughtful Schools Program is a toolkit for schools to assist them to become adversity and trauma-informed. The materials and strategies contained within the Thoughtful Schools Program enables the process of becoming trauma-informed for schools to be individualised, place-based, culturally appropriate and context specific.

We have observed that becoming adversity and trauma-informed doesn’t need to be complex, expensive or time consuming for schools. With self-assessment of school practices, commitment from a champion working group and a willingness to implement evidence-based strategies, we believe that schools can become adversity and trauma- informed and responsive with minimal resources. Being trauma-informed is not an add-on but rather an empathic, understanding and reflective way of communicating, relating and responding to children.
