Mild, Moderate, and Major Strategies

  • Lee-Anne Gray


While every chapter has a final section evaluating current methods aimed at improving different examples of Educational Trauma, this chapter consolidates even more solutions and strategies into three levels. There are mild strategies that require minimal or no cost, and less effort than the other 2 levels. The moderate strategies increase in demand from the practitioner, however they also influence greater change. And same for the major strategies, which may also include major costs and investments.
