Abstract

While trauma-informed schools are gathering momentum, the field of trauma-informed teaching of adult EAL/D
students is to date an under-researched field. We know that post-traumatic stress responses interfere with learning
and especially verbal learning, memory, and attention. Moreover, in an era of mass displacement and natural disasters,
trauma is being increasingly recognised as an issue for the adult EAL/D classroom. In this presentation, Victoria Wilson
discusses key trauma-informed principles and how they support effective pedagogy for all learners.
