On November 17th and 19th, UAF welcomes trauma-informed practice teachers Jody Hassel and Linda Thai for a workshop on Trauma-Informed Pedagogy. This 2-day, 4-hour workshop with Jody Hassel and Linda Thai is for all UAF faculty, staff, and graduate students interested in applying trauma-informed practices to their teaching. This workshop will cover:
- Theory of trauma-informed practice
- Reframing common trauma responses
- Power, relationships, and intersectionality in trauma-informed pedagogy
- How to operationalize empowerment in education
Trauma-informed pedagogy is an approach to teaching and learning that recognizes the whole person not just in and outside of the classroom, but through the experiences and challenges that may impact the learning space. In this workshop, certified trauma-informed facilitators will share research and theory that supports trauma-informed practice, including the ACEs study, trauma’s impacts on the brain, Attachment and Trauma theory. Through praxis, participants will be invited to connect theory to method, exploring practical applications to higher-ed learning spaces.
