Trauma-Informed Practice for Teaching Artists – Jan 30

Posted by Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation on January 11, 2022

Philadelphia is working toward becoming a trauma-informed city in which public policy recognizes and supports those in our city whose lives are impacted by trauma.  Trauma can be living in a community with persistent violence, deep poverty, or in any environment that is chronically unstable.  It is crucial that the work of teaching artists is seen as a strategy to help people deal with trauma and that teaching artists are equipped to effectively and responsibly work with participants who have been impacted by trauma.

Any artist working in community settings will encounter young people who have been impacted by trauma. While teaching artists rarely have details access to a participant’s personal history, there are tools they can use to identify a young person who is potentially trauma-impacted and strategies that they can employ to accommodate and engage that young person.
