2. Trauma and Learning: What you can do as an educator

For Faculty! Two opportunities for professional development.  

Trauma is one of the reasons that students too often fail to complete courses and programs.  Trauma contributes to concentration problems, a pervasive sense of fear for one’s safety, difficulty processing information sequentially, higher rates of absences, and lower grades.  While trauma can and does occur in many people's lives (something like 70% of people in the US have experienced at least one traumatic event), trauma is especially common among inner-city residents, veterans, foster youth and communities of color, with an estimated 20% to 40% of these populations experiencing current symptoms of traumatic stress.  

Come to one or both of the following presentations, to learn how you can become a trauma-sensitive educator.  Gain practical tools for reducing the chance of trauma derailing your students' education.  Discuss with other faculty how this might apply to your classes, counseling sessions or library work at the college. 

Trauma in Students’ Lives: How it affects learning and what faculty can do about it.
