Round Table to explore Trauma-Informed Student Engagement
Topic Area: Information Session
Presented By: Cheryl Williams-Hecksel
The Trauma Services and Training Network, formed in 2018, is comprised of representatives of academic and service units at MSU that are involved in providing trauma specific services and training. In the Fall of 2019, this focus expanded as a TSTN Faculty Learning Community was formed. The TSTN continues to convene members of the University community who are interested in and committed to creating a trauma informed institution. The work of TSTN has continued and takes on increasing significance as members of the University community negotiate the current pandemic as well as current issues related to racial disparities and discrimination.
The principals that a trauma informed institution embraces are Safety, Trustworthiness, Choice, Collaboration and Empowerment with ongoing attention to issues of Equity and Inclusion. A trauma informed organization promotes these principals as values that support assuring that all people are engaged in a manner that is sensitive to potential adverse and traumatic experiences. This roundtable discussion will engage participants in exploring strategies and challenges related to engagement of students through trauma informed teaching and service delivery.This roundtable provides an important opportunity for the TSTN to engage additional stakeholders in the current and future work of the faculty learning community.
