Cultivating Trauma-Informed Spaces in Education: Promising Practices Manual
February 15, 2023
Cultivating Trauma-Informed Spaces in Education Promising Practices Manual is an outcome of a Sheridan Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activities Growth Grant. The project goal was to develop proactive measures to enhance student support, and safer learning experiences, and reduce trauma, re-traumatization, and vicarious trauma. The Manual is intended to support increased awareness of trauma and the importance of Trauma-Informed Education in post-secondary education. It includes a framework, including macro, mezzo, and micro level organizational recommendations and pedagogical practices. It is a tool to support educators and educational institutions, through a preventative and harm-reducing approach, to support more compassionate, supportive, equitable and flexible learning spaces and workplaces.
