How to bring trauma-informed principles and practices to your classroom

With Helen Meskhidze (she/her), PhD Candidate

The majority (85%) of college students report exposure to a traumatic event in their lifetime (Frazier et al., 2009). Based on this fact, and in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, adopting a trauma-informed approach is vital to creating inclusive, transformative classrooms that encourage collaboration and intellectual risk-taking. In this workshop, we will discuss the impacts of trauma on student learning, what it means to adopt a trauma-informed approach, and how to think about trauma-informed pedagogy not as an emergency response but as a standard procedure.

Advance registration is appreciated but not required. Join us on Zoom at the start of the event.
