The modern classroom is fraught with challenges that previous generations did not have to contend with. Whether suffering from personal tragedy or a massive traumatic event, 21st century students must navigate the debilitating aftereffects of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Helping students to find healing and actively confront the devastating impact trauma can have, educators can provide the kind of support students need to transform from trauma victims to trauma survivors. This course will investigate how to create programs to help students deal proactively with trauma. By examining strategies to help schools become trauma sensitive and places of empowerment and outreach, this course will help educators learn effective avenues to help students find healing and safety.
