A practical approach to addressing the school-based emotional and social difficulties that can result from early trauma, neglect or abuse. These difficulties can lead to isolation, anti-social or extreme behaviour, and often lead to statementing and exclusion from school. Exclusion removes the possibility of the child developing secure attachments with peers and the school system, which can result in a revolving door that becomes a trap for vulnerable and at-risk children. Contains practical and creative activities and exercises, worksheets and appraisal, together with accessible attachment theory and the neuroscience of emotions and brain development.
