Bearing Witness as an Act of Love, Dr. Mays Imad
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
In this session we will briefly consider the neuroscience of toxic stress and its impact on our ability to engage, connect, and learn. How will we welcome our students and colleagues to our institutions and classrooms this fall? What can we, educators, possibly do to help attend to their mental health and ameliorate their exhaustion and distress, while at the same time, intentionally engaging in self-care? We will examine the principles and practical examples of trauma- informed approaches and reflect on the connections between trauma-informed education, healing, and restorative justice.
