Online Digital Database
The Online Digital Database for Developmental Trauma Awareness and Parasympathetic (Nervously Regulating) Activities for learning environments is an exhaustive compilation of innovative practices, projects, policy papers, methodologies and pedagogical approaches, tools and resources.
This material, when possible, is divided by stages of brain development and the five senses.
Provide schools for both migrant and native children alike, teachers and parents with parasympathetic / nervously regulating activities which have been neuroscientifically and psychologically verified for classroom use and beyond. The parasympathetic / nervously regulating activities have been selected to address developmental trauma-associated behaviours: anger, fear or dissociation in the school, classroom, home and community. When applied can help keep primary school students nervously regulated so they can learn, as nervously dysregulated or trauma-triggered students are not using the part of the brain which can retain learning.
They can also be used by the wider school community to address nervous dysregulation in learners, as a nervously dysregulated person cannot regulate a nervously dysregulated person. These activities will help the school community become developmentally trauma-informed to maintain the social and educational inclusion of vulnerable individuals.
Guide the school community to understand those developmental trauma behaviours are triggered without the conscious awareness of the sufferer and should be viewed as an unconscious response to past experience in the present time and treated as such.
