Pupils who survive multiple traumatic experiences of loss, trauma, abuse and neglect can easily be misunderstood in our schools, despite our good intentions. Such children often underachieve, at worst becoming excluded from the very place that could offer them an opportunity for "second chance learning" and for reaching their potential. These children do not respond well or consistently to behavioural modification techniques, nor are they able to thrive in a system largely created for those from a "good-enough" background. Louise Bomber's innovative and easy to use strategies provide teachers and teaching assistants with new perspectives, practical tools and the confidence for supporting these children. Her work is based on the latest research from child development and Attachment theory (Bowlby), as well as many years of solid practical experience as a teacher-therapist working within education and social services with children, families and schools. Contents include: providing an additional attachment figure in schools, transitions during the school day, permanency and constancy, regulating arousal levels, wondering aloud, lowering the effects of shame, creating home/school partnerships, working with the transition from primary to secondary phase, and more.

About the Author

Louise Bomber practices as a Teacher Therapist for the Alternative Centre for Education - a special school which houses a pupil referral unit (PRU), provides integrated behaviour support for children with emotional behavioural and social difficulties (EBSD), and full-time provision for pupils aged 5-16. She is also an Adoption Support Teacher within social services. In addition, Louise works for Cornerways Children's Services as a therapist to adolescent girls who are looked after. She has been a teacher in both primary and secondary education. Under a multi-agency team led by Dr Paul Holmes in Brighton, she was involved in pioneering work on Attachment amongst children who were fostered or adopted. She believes passionately in finding ways to integrate the worlds of education and therapy from an attachment perspective to provide educational support for teachers, pioneering innovative work built on this premise.
