Creating Safe, Healthy, and Inclusive Schools
Challenges and Solutions
Evidence-based approaches to building safe, healthy, and inclusive schools for all children.
School safety has become a critical topic of concern in educational contexts. In this book, editors Christopher C. Morphew, Ashley Cureton, and Vanya C. Jones bring together a timely collection of essays to outline the obstacles and most promising approaches to creating safe, healthy, and inclusive schools for all children. Challenging the current national discourse around school safety as a form of violence prevention, contributors broaden our view of safe schools to include places that are accessible and equitable for all youth, particularly those from historically marginalized communities.
Chapters provide historical perspectives on and holistic solutions for supporting youth development and ensuring safe spaces for children to learn and grow. A broad range of interdisciplinary scholars apply their expertise to discuss evidence-based practices, programs, tools, and policies integral to developing safe and healthy school environments. Contributors cover topics such as suicide prevention, trauma-sensitive schools, bullying and cyberbullying, social media and technology, mental health promotion, family and community engagement, and school security and technology.
Tailored to school leaders, teachers, policymakers, safety officers, and researchers who are invested in making schools safe and inclusive places, Creating Safe, Healthy, and Inclusive Schools draws on a trauma-informed and youth-centered perspective.
