The Building Blocks of Trauma-Informed Classroom Practice
How do we create and support trauma-responsive work in our programs, teaching artists and practice? Carlee Adamson, Equity Coach with Oakland Unified Public Schools, will lead an interactive workshop exploring the building blocks of trauma-relevant practice. Build awareness of the role of trauma in learning and development and become better equipped to build programming and support staff that are trauma-responsive while creating safe spaces for youth. Move and create with Carlee while learning how to facilitate boundaries and promote personal growth and creativity in an arts education/providing environment.
Join us for this workshop which will be held in conjunction with the Contemporary Jewish Museum's "From Generation to Generation" exhibit. The workshop wil include a short tour of this exhibit in which contemporary artists from a wide array of world cultures respond to trauma experienced by their parents.
