Evidence-based Practices for Addressing Chronic Stress in High-Crime Communities

The Trauma Responsive Educational Practices (TREP) Project was launched in 2016 by leading educators at The University of Chicago with a policy brief on the educational consequences of the chronic toxic stress of living in high-crime communities. The TREP Project works to develop the individual and organizational capacity of educators and schools serving children growing up in neighborhoods that have high levels of toxic stress, such as violent crime, concentrated poverty, concentrated foster care involvement, and housing instability. Educators can join the project’s virtual learning community to become a partner educator and receive policy and practice briefs that will increase their understanding of how traumatic experiences undermine students’ neurobiological development in ways that affect classroom functioning, as well as their ability to proactively intervene using evidence-based trauma responsive educational practices.
