Webinar: How to Create Trauma Responsive Educational Institutions and Why it Matters, Jan 31
Topic: How to Create Trauma Responsive Educational Institutions and Why it Matters
Date: Friday, January 31, 2020
Time: 1-2:30 pm
Description: We live in a world of increasing trauma, whether created by nature (fires, floods, earthquakes) or by individuals (shootings, suicides, family dysfunction, addictions). We carry our trauma with us and many students in college, arguably one in two, has experienced trauma in their lives and will display trauma symptomology moving forward. Trauma symptomology affects learning outcomes as well as psycho-social and physical well-being. Colleges and their faculty/staff would benefit from becoming trauma responsive on the micro and macro levels, enabling improved retention, academic progression and graduation rates. This webinar will provide at least 10 concrete strategies that colleges and those who work within them can deploy, all grounded in theory, to provide a more trauma responsive environment for their students (regardless of their age and stage). There will be hands on activities that webinar participants can try during the webinar as well as opportunities for questions and discussion.
Presenter: Karen Gross, a former college president, is currently an author and educator specializing in trauma. Her forthcoming book, Trauma Does Not Stop at the School Door, will be released in June 2020.
