Working with trauma-impacted learners can pose particular challenges to practitioners who teach refugees and asylum seekers, as students tend to display signs of negative thinking, have low confidence and may have difficulties engaging with learning.  The session will give practical ideas for participants on the use of 5-minute classroom activities that have the potential to improve the psychological and emotional well-being of trauma-experienced students.  We will examine why these activities could help trauma-impacted learners and discuss how promoting a growth mindset with a focus on identification of strengths and positive emotions can be transformational in the ESOL classroom.
