This resource details a study that evaluated the effectiveness of a multi-component strategy for the installation of trauma-informed approaches in urban schools.
This study evaluated the effectiveness of a multi-component strategy for the installation of trauma-informed approaches in urban schools serving low-income, mostly Black youth marginalized due to intersecting discriminatory and oppressive economic, education, policing, and housing policies and approaches, on-site coaching in the application of trauma-informed approaches in the classroom, and technical assistance for school leadership related to the Safe Schools NOLA intervention model evaluated in the current project intervention model. The intervention was conducted through three core elements, and the measurement plan included data collection approximately quarterly. The SSNOLA intervention offers a promising framework for the effective installation of trauma-informed approaches in schools. More research is needed to replicate the reported findings and to identify other essential installation strategies.
