On November 14, 2013, T.L.P.I. officially released Helping Traumatized Children Learn, Volume 2 at an event hosted by the Mary E. Baker Elementary School in Brockton, MA. The new books are now being mailed to everyone who had already placed an order through their website.
T.L.P.I. is actively campaigning for passage of
H.3528 – An Act Relative to Safe and Supportive Schools, legislation currently pending before the Massachusetts legislature. This bill would require all schools in the Commonwealth to include action plans for creating safe and supportive environments in the School Improvement Plans they are already required to produce under law. This will set the conditions for a whole school approach organized by the Flexible Framework that can help schools align multiple initiatives, such as bullying prevention; positive discipline; and truancy, dropout, and violence prevention. It will lay the groundwork for whole-school trauma sensitivity. H 3528 is discussed in volume 2 of Helping Traumatized Children Learn.
