Virtual Symposium on Trauma and Resilience Informed Teaching and Learning

Current research is sounding the alarm regarding the emotional and psychological well-being of students, including reports of “an unprecedented mental health crisis” in Indiana, with over 47% of girls in grades 7-12 “feeling sad or hopeless for two or more weeks in a row.” LEAP Indiana is hosting a “Communities of Care: Virtual Symposium on Trauma and Resilience Informed Teaching and Learning” to empower educators to better recognize students in crisis and serve their needs via classroom practices, curriculum development, and community building.

Special guest David D. Robertson – Executive Director of Hope Is Foundation, Mental Health Practitioner UChicago Medicine, former Researcher for the Center for Prolonged Grief, and SAFElab fellow Columbia University’s Harlem Loss Project will keynote the symposium, followed by several smaller sessions led by higher education faculty, counselors, and community leaders from across the state.

Attendees can expect to learn more about various aspects of trauma-sensitive care and will receive a resources packet including research, readings, and pedagogical tools to take back to one’s classrooms and home institutions.
