The School Wellness Wheel

A Framework Addressing Trauma, Culture, and Mastery to Raise Student Achievement

Your school can evolve to address trauma, promote well-being, and elevate learning. The School Wellness Wheel by Mike Ruyle, Libby Child, and Nancy Dome will show you how. Backed by educational, psychological, and medical research, the resource introduces a growth-focused framework for supporting students’ cognitive, social, and emotional needs. Each chapter contains vignettes, examples, and advice from educators who are actively engaged in transforming their schools into centers of healing and resilience.

Benefits
