The chapter outlines the prevalence of traumatic events in the lives of our nation’s children and adolescents and highlights populations that are particularly vulnerable to trauma exposure. The chapter outlines the clinical features of pediatric posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and describes considerations for differential diagnosis. Common comorbid diagnoses are described, as are the short- and long-term academic consequences of trauma exposure. Screening tools for trauma exposure and PTSD are presented. The chapter provides an overview of the strategies and interventions used in schools to mitigate the impact of trauma on students and describes approaches to monitoring the impact of these efforts at the micro, macro, and mezzo levels. Resources for school staff supporting trauma exposed students are provided.
