Developing a Trauma-Informed Lens in the College Classroom and Empowering Students through Building Positive Relationships
Gutierrez, Daniel; Gutierrez, Andrea
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v12 n1 p11-18 2019
In many social science college courses, professors cover a wide variety of topics that may act as triggers for victims of trauma in both traditional and online courses. At the same time, we may also encounter students who suffer trauma during their college experience. The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the importance of creating a safe and empowering environment in college classrooms regardless of what subjects we teach. Safe environments and the relationships we build with our students play a vital role in student success by understanding the importance of being trauma-informed.
