In a way, I think that a school not being trauma-informed almost creates an unsafe environment for the student. If the staff member is unable to recognize what may be considered as a flashback trauma trigger, it leaves that individual vulnerable. I say this because that individual may not be able to explain why they are having such an intense reaction to the situation. They might be unaware of the link between the original trauma event and the current trauma trigger and feel as if they are not in control of themselves. Seeing how dangerous trauma triggers can be, when a student is acting out, school staff should consider if the underlying cause may be past trauma.
Week 3 Question: Student will discuss family problems that may warrant external intervention. The modern day family has different principles, background, and values; with these components come with the dealing of different attitudes and personalities. Family issues can manifest in the healthiest of families, resulting in frustration and painful interactions among family members. Family issues may warrant external intervention may result from parental conflict and signs of neglect and any form of abuse. Parental conflict in the home is one major issue that can attract external attention and warrant external intervention from the Department of Children and Family Services.

The great depression made a major impact on the lives of the people that lived through it. One group of people that is often overlooked are children that lived during that time period. When the parents lost their jobs the responsibility the parent once held was put on the children of the families to contribute to the income of the home. Because of this in the great depression “two-fifths of children were employed in part time jobs” (Elder 65). In Glen Elder’s book Children of the Great Depression: Social Change in Life Experience he discusses how the depression affected those children in their later lives.
Psychological Effects of Grief, development plays an important role in the processing of loss. This text explains many of the psychological aspects of grief and loss at each development on the understanding of sudden death. The motivation for this text is to integrate understandings of sudden loss with knowledge of human development over the life course. This aspect of grief has not received the attention it deserves. Sudden loss stimulates an acute sense of vulnerability and subsequent hypervigilance just as trauma does (Lopez Levers, 2012).

For example, a stressed parent can take out their anger on one child and not the other, making their experiences within that particular family system different. A stressed parent might inflict physical abuse or neglect their child simply because he/she is stressed from what is going on in the family dynamic. The direct influence is the family life/structure that is triggering stress and forming some sort of family abuse or violence. It is important to note that children are not the direct cause for the violence; it is the circumstances of the family and the members that have influence. A child’s inappropriate behavior at school can cause inappropriate behavior at home and stress to
• Encouragement: if children are not given the praise and encouragement they need, this will affect their relationships and friendships as they get older and they will have poor attachment this can develop into anxiety, depression and they will lack motivation. • Learning difficulties are also a factor that influences a child’s development. Children with learning difficulties will need extra support with certain areas of development and may develop low self-esteem because they get annoyed with themselves for not being able to do something, such as a simple numeracy problem or read a book. External factors affecting learning and development are likely to be limited access to services and support, but parents and carers may not be aware of this. • Children with ill heath on a regular basis can develop much more slower, this may cause longer term issues such as failure to grow or thrive.
