Event Description


This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 11-15, 2023.

In this workshop, we will explore how to foster a supportive classroom environment for both students and instructors by acknowledging that everyone can experience and can be impacted by trauma. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your role as a facilitator of learning as it relates to the impact of trauma on you and your students’ executive functioning, as well as the boundaries of our role as it relates to trauma and self-care strategies. In addition, we will explore a few simple strategies to help you make your classroom activities trauma-aware.
