Trauma-Informed Learning Webinar

Trauma-Informed Learning Webinar:

In times of uncertainty we look to our leaders–at home, at school, and at work. Even when we know they don’t necessarily have solutions, we look to them for guidance and reassurance that things are going to be okay. Our students, especially those who are less privileged, are going to look at their professors for that reassurance and comfort. While we can't guarantee them that all will be ok, we can remind them that what they are experiencing (fear, anxiety, trauma) is typical and offer them guidance and help them connect to things that ground them

But how do hold out students’ hearts when ours are aching? How do help them ease their anxiety when we ourselves are probably feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and unsure about the future? How do we help them find a learning sanctuary—to keep learning and growing?

This free webinar is designed for educators who are interested in learning how they can talk with their students about trauma. The webinar is based on meetings and conversations the presenter had (and is having) with her students. Participants will acquire strategies they can use to help their students continue learning in the midst of a pandemic.
