Trauma-Informed Teaching: Strategies to Support Teachers

Speakers

GINA MIKEL PETRIE and JANINE JULIANNA DARRAGH
College of Education, Health and Human Sciences
University of Idaho

Nearly half of all children have experienced some sort of trauma; for teenagers and adults, that number is even higher (Mels et al, 2010). Trauma impacts brain development, learning, and behavior. Children who have undergone trauma are more likely to struggle with language, communication, problem solving, cause and effect relationships, attention and concentration, emotion regulation, and relationship development and maintenance with both peers and adults (Citizen, 2006). As such, it is imperative that teachers, have skills in trauma-informed pedagogy in order to meet the needs of young learners for tomorrow’s world. Moreover, in supporting their students who have survived trauma, teachers are at risk for experiencing secondary trauma themselves. In this presentation we share classroom strategies for supporting both students who have encountered trauma as well as tips for teachers to manage secondary trauma they may also experience

Listening in the Comfort Zone @ Liceo "Giacomo Leopardi" Palazzo Venieri,
Dic 5@15:00–17:00

Listening in the Comfort Zone

Speaker: Michael Lacey Freeman

This talk will focus on how we can find ways to provide our students with authentic listening experiences that engage them on an intellectual and emotional level. How many times have we heard our students cry, ‘non ci capisco niente’? How can we direct our students’ attention towards what they do understand, and not only towards what they don’t understand? Doing so would increase confidence and provide a basis for students to build on and improve their understanding. This talk will provide practical tips about what kind of input can be used in the classroom, and how that input can be exploited to bring listening into the comfort zone of the listener.
