While research indicates that 66 to 85 percent of students entering college have experienced a lifetime traumatic event (Read et al, 2011), we know that students have also experienced trauma through systematic oppression, lack of access to resources, and the dramatic shifts in their daily routines caused by the pandemic. This session aims to provide educators and educational developers with the knowledge and tools to recognize the effects of traumatization and develop classrooms based in trauma-informed care. We will review principles of trauma-informed instruction, practices to support students in coping with trauma, and strategies for responding to student triggers.
