Cultivating Empathy in a Diverse World 

November 16th,10-5PM

November 2019 Institute

Part One:

Trauma & Resilience, 10AM-1PM

Healthy student development is often hindered when a student has experienced neglect or trauma. The ability to reach students with a trauma-informed understanding is key to establishing a safe and effective learning environment. This workshop will use didactic and active means to explore the  basics of identifying  trauma, core concepts and definitions, and how to foster resilience in adolescents.

Learning Objectives. Participants will:

  • Discuss and identify specific examples of trauma and how they manifest in child and adolescent behavior
  • Define resilience and its role in adapting to life after trauma
  • Explain & experience how fun, play, and resilience can be utilized in a strengths-based approach to working with adolescents with trauma histories

Part Two: 

Cultivating Empathy in a Diverse World, 2PM-5PM

In this trauma-informed workshop, participants will actively explore their personal identifiers (areas of privilege and areas of potential marginalization) alongside their potential biases. Through a lens of play, curiosity, and respect, participants will investigate how previous experiences and unconscious assumptions can impact dynamics in a classroom or group setting. Participants will experience engaging game play, active discussion, and an empathy-based model for understanding bias and relationship within our diverse world.

Learning Objectives. Participants will:

  • Inspect their own social identifiers and raise self-awareness of these identifiers through facilitated group interaction
  • Recognize internal biases and how these affect relationships at work and in life
  • Discuss as a group, anti-bias techniques and how to use techniques from workshop in the real world
