How can schools bring an equity lens to their trauma-informed education initiatives? Schools can do more than respond to the trauma that some students have already experienced; they can play a key role in preventing trauma and disrupting the larger social forces that create trauma in our world. This edWebinar will present a fresh take on trauma-informed practices, with takeaways for teachers, school leaders, and anyone else who is invested in making change in education.
Alex Shevrin Venet will introduce participants to the key understandings of the Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education framework, sharing stories from her work as a teacher and supporting schools with trauma-informed education. Participants can expect to leave with a new understanding of their role in trauma-informed education and ideas for how to get started.
This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-12 educators, school leaders, district leaders, chief equity officers, and at-risk coordinators. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
