There are six attributes of a trauma sensitive school that are explained in the initiative's book, "Helping Traumatized Children Learn II: Creating and Advocating for Trauma Sensitive Schools." Those attributes came from work done in schools in Brockton, Mass., and other places, and describe what a trauma sensitive school looks and feels like, said Michael Gregory, a senior attorney with the initiative and a clinical professor of law at Harvard Law School.
