Recognizing Trauma in Our Students and Developing Amelioration Strategies

Friday, December 9, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Do you wonder how trauma affects our brains, what its symptoms are, and how you can help your students deal with it? Trauma responsive pedagogy combines research and practice experience to give you the tools that you need. Dr. Gross will lead a conversation on the effects and symptomology of trauma, as evidenced by traumatized students (whether caused by floods, family dysfunction, the COVID-19 pandemic, illness/death, or discrimination, among other causes). Dr. Gross will explore the science and empirical studies addressing the impact of trauma on our brains and bodies and how these factors affect learning and psychosocial development. Then, she will share a set of concrete strategies that faculty can use to help students manage their trauma so they can learn more effectively and successfully.
