Developmental Stages and Trauma Informed Approaches to Dance Education: Learning to Empower All Students
Educators of all kinds are adopting a trauma-informed approach in their classrooms. This approach not only addresses the prevalence of childhood trauma, but promotes empowerment and agency in all students. The workshop will give an overview of personal and systemic trauma, explain how it impacts children at the developmental stages of Design Dance students, and demonstrate how a trauma-informed approach can be applied to an arts curriculum.
This event is FREE for Design Dance Staff. Staff can bring a friend for a $5 fee. A $10 donation is suggested for general public.
This event will be facilitated by Stephanie Williams & Christine Reed. Teaching Artists present at this session will receive a certificate that will enable them the opportunity to work in more area schools through Design Dance programs.
