Abstract

Increasingly, many English learners come to the classroom with a history of trauma, which can impact on learning and behaviour. In this paper I examine posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and English language learning within the context of the triple disaster in Tohoku in 2011. Now, after more than 5 years, Japan is still dealing with the psychological effects of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster. This paper is aimed at raising awareness of traumatised learners and providing practical solutions for creating a learning environment in which all students can flourish.

心的外傷の既往歴を持つ英語学習者が次第に多くなりつつあるが、このことは学びや学習態度に影響を及ぼす可能性がある。本論文は、2011年に発生した東日本大震災における心的外傷後ストレス障害(PTSD)をもつ学習者による英語学習を分析する。すでに5年以上経った後も、日本は地震、津波、および原子力事故による心理的影響に依然として直面している。本論文は、心的外傷を持つ学習者に対する認識を高め、あらゆる学習者が活躍できる学習環境の整備に向けた現実的な解決策を提供することを目的とする。
