Peace & Justice Author Series: EQUITY-CENTERED TRAUMA-INFORMED EDUCATION with Alex Shevrin Venet, Thursday, June 2nd from 6-7pm on Zoom. Register at the link below.
Trauma-informed education and equity in education are often seen as two different initiatives. In reality, educational equity reduces the presence of trauma, and trauma-informed practice can help foster equity. In Equity-Centered Trauma-Informed Education, Alex Shevrin Venet explores the myriad connections and intersections between equity and trauma-informed education, and propose principles for educators who want to make this integrated approach the heart of their practice.
