Alex Shevrin Venet is an educator, professional development facilitator, and writer.

Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education should be required reading for every educator and education leader.--Cindy Johnson, Executive Director, Edutopia
This book is the book that I wish I had when started my journey as an educator. Venet's work is not just important, it has the ability to recast our collective future into something more healthy, more human--more powerful.--Cornelius Minor, educator and author of We Got This: Equity Access, and the Quest to Be Who Our Students Need Us to Be
[B]rimming with timely and critical insights. Classroom teachers and school leaders will find it expansive in scope, intimate and engaging in style, and actionable in content. Crucially, Venet centers antiracism and social justice as fundamental to trauma-informed schooling, making this a vital resource for educators.--Elizabeth Dutro, PhD, Professor, School of Education, University of Colorado Boulder, author of The Vulnerable Heart of Literacy: Centering Trauma as Powerful Pedagogy
Venet's book has provided a critical framework for trauma-informed practice that centers the goals of educational equity and liberatory education. Teachers, administrators, district, and state leadership would be well served by applying this perspective as they aim to serve their students and communities.--Colleen Wilkinson, Director of Montessori Country Day School Houston and Consultant at Trauma Informed Montessori
This is the book on trauma-informed education I've been waiting for. Practical and inspirational, affirming and challenging, patient and urgent, Venet invites us to consider the political dimensions of trauma and healing, correctly steering us away from savior narratives of damage and rescue and instead toward dreams of collective well-being and justice.--Carla Shalaby, author of Troublemakers: Lessons in Freedom from Young Children at School
