Emotional Poverty, Volume 2

Has teaching ever felt more stressful?

External pressures, environmental factors, previous experiences, fear, anger—all these and more create stress and tension in the classroom. Emotional distress interrupts and can harm—even destroy—effective teaching, learning, and emotional wellness in teachers and students.

But how do these emotions develop in you and your students? The fact is many of us suffer from some form of emotional poverty. Think of it as an absence of emotional resilience or resources. Written for educators, not psychologists, Emotional Poverty, Volume 2 helps you understand and overcome emotional poverty so you can build more effective classrooms and safer schools.

You’ll get:

  • Practical strategies for creating a more emotionally healthy classroom
  • Deeper understandings of adolescent brain development
  • Cues to recognize emotional stress in yourself and students
  • Techniques to develop a student’s prefrontal cortex and build emotional resilience
  • Tools to overcome your stress, compassion fatigue, or secondary traumatic stress
  • Solutions for dealing with angry, emotional parents and other adults

“A game-changer. Ruby offers practical strategies that can be easily implemented, plus the science of why students act the way they do and how to support them.” 

–Hilary Sloat, Principal, Hilliard Horizon Elementary School, Hilliard, Ohio

“Another powerful work for educators who are yearning for social/emotional strategies to help support students, parents, and even staff members.”

–Billy Pringle, TASSP Associate Executive Director, Austin, Texas

Prophetic. Written prior to the 2020 pandemic, beyond its overall relevance it can guide our plans support the emotional recovery of our students, their parents, and ourselves.”

–Bethanie H. Tucker, Ed.D., Author of Tucker Signing Strategies for Reading, Alton, Virginia
