DescriptionAfter 18 months of living with a pandemic that brought into stark relief the edge between peril and possibility, how do we respond to the suffering this time has wrought in ways that empower our students without becoming either overwhelmed or numb? This SET will provide concrete and memorable tools you can employ immediately in your interactions with students to help you meet them where they are, while also caring for yourself when needed. Besides their own experiences in the classroom, Geiger and Whitenton will draw heavily upon research on empathy, compassion, self-compassion, empathic distress, trauma-informed care, and more. Attendees will also have the option of participating in these trauma-informed practices during the seminar to help solidify what we have learned together. No experience required, but expect to enjoy yourselves as we open a toolbox for caring for students (and ourselves) during this unprecedented time.
