Share this...

While this article is about schools, the information on trauma-informed and why use of punishment and rewards are counter-productive, is relevant not only in schools but in all organizations and to everyone within them. As is our practice when posting industry articles NOT written by LifeWork Systems, we highlight within the article where our work and concepts converge with those of the author. Read this highlighted version.

Not only are children experiencing adversity, many adults are too, and likely in most homes, businesses, churches, neighborhoods; anywhere that people still espouse a pound of flesh mentality. The motto of ACEs Connection is, “Join the movement to prevent ACEs, heal trauma, and build resilience. We need to do the same for people of every age, in every setting.
