Event Information

Worskhop Session Description

Participants will have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of key vocabulary and research around childhood trauma, the effect of toxic stress on brain development, and the need for us to create a Trauma-Invested learning environment. Participants will also learn how to embrace the need to build self-awareness and tend to their self-care in order to be primed and ready to effectively support their students and children.

Learning Outcomes

The participants will learn how to:

  • Recognize that people's multiple identities interact and create unique and complex individuals (Identity)  

  • Express comfort with people who are both similar to and different from them and engage respectfully with all people (Diversity)  

  • Analyze the harmful impact of bias and injustice on the world, historically and today (Justice)

  • Express empathy when people are excluded or mistreated because of their identities and concern when they themselves experience bias (Action)
