One More Life Chance – by Mark Escott
Current education provision struggles to meet the needs of the most vulnerable young people: those with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). One More Life Chance provides practitioners in schools and other settings with the information they need to understand the difficulties faced by traumatised children both in school and in later life. It urges teachers and other professionals to respond with care and compassion and equips them with the tools to help children build resilience and manage the impact of their ACEs.
This book will help you to:
• understand the impact of ACEs on social, emotional and physical health
• build relationships and begin the healing process with traumatised children and young people
• provide therapeutic education for students affected by ACEs and encourage academic achievement
• support children in attending school, improve their life chances and restore their ability to reach their potential
